International Development Research @ Cambridge


Urbanism; Political thought; Civic Space; Department of Architecture; School of Arts and Humanities

Dr Ingrid Schroder is a Lecturer in American Urbanism, the Director of the Royal Institute of British Architects Part I programme and of the MPhil in Architecture and Urban Design at the Department of Architecture. She is also the founding Director of the Cambridge Design Research Studio. 

Ingrid’s research is focused on the relationship between monumental urban spaces and their lived experience, covering political thought and civic space. More specifically, her design studies examine how tall building can form a new urban infrastructure and be adapted for reuse despite their scale and hermetic nature.

Ingrid’s commitment to urban improvement can impact the lives of the world’s poorest 3 billion people.
