Live Works is The University of Sheffield School of Architecture’s Urban Room in Sheffield city centre. Live Works engages local people in debate about the past, present and future of the city, and supports community-led regeneration of the city’s buildings, streets and neighbourhoods. We run public events and exhibitions, collaborate with local partners on socially-engaged projects, and undertake research projects that explore the future of the built environment on a local, national and international level.
