Research endeavours in the School of Architecture, Planning and Geomatics includes both conventional research work as well as creative work. In the context of the applied nature of the different disciplines that constitute the School, group/individual professional achievements are recognized as much as academic research is acknowledged. The professional and research achievements in the fields of planning, architecture and geomatics include fields such as urban design, architectural design, contemporary architectural theory, planning theory, urban conservation, geographic information systems, land tenure and cadastral systems and urban transport.
Ongoing research work continues by staff who is engaged with post-graduate dissertations. The content of this work varies across a range of topics and includes the question of architectural education and curriculum (being investigated by Francis Carter); the issue of space and power as it relates to apartheid architecture (being researched by Alta Steenkamp); and the implications of power relations on contemporary housing responses in South Africa (being considered by Sonja Spamer)
The Geomatics division within the school has focussed on a number of areas. These include:
Documentation, modelling and visualization of African heritage sites, close-range photogrammetry, laser scanning of architectural structures and remote sensing of the environment.
Issues relating to land tenure options, spatial management and conflict management of informal settlement upgrading, as well as issues relating to fiscal cadastral reform and modeling for property valuations.
Modelling of the shape of the Earth (geoid) using gravity and satellite data, applications of GPS in meteorology and modeling of datum transformations in Africa.
In July the division co-hosted the AFREF technical workshop, dealing with the unification of the geodetic datums in Africa and attended by delegates from 22 African countries.
Academics from the School have over the past year made substantial achievements. A number of staff members received awards:
Professor Jo Noero (with Noero Wolff Architects), won the Lubetkin Prize for 2006 for the Red Location Museum, Awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects for the best building outside of the EU for the period 2004-2006, as well as the Royal Institute of British Architects International Prize for 2006 for the Red Location Museum and the Dedallo Minosse Prize - President of the Jury Award for Red Location Museum, Italy July 2006. Jo Noero (with Noero Wolff Architects), also won two Institute of SA Architects National Award of Merit for Design for 2006 for Usasazo High School and Delft Care Centres. The Red Location museum was also selected for the Exhibition of South African Architecture at the Venice Biennale in September - November 2006.
Professor David Dewar (with P Louw) won an Architecture South African Merit Award for Freedom Square : An urban Design Framework and Precinct Plans for Freedom Square, Windhoek, Namibia and (with P Louw and L Le Grange) another Architecture South African Merit Award for : A Conceptual Framework and Planning and Urban Design Concept for the Klipfontein Corridor, Cape Town, as well as an Award of Commendation in the International Competition entitled ‘Celebrating Cities 2’, organized by the International Union des Architects, for a project entitled ‘Klipfontein Corridor’. Also (with P Louw and B Southworth) SA Planning Institute Award for best plan over 2002-2006 period for Spatial Framework for the University of Cape Town.

Sonja Spamer won the Top Billing/Momentum Lifestyle award for 2006. Category – architects/decorators. The award was for Weavers Nest house, featured on national television and in Top Billing magazine - 2006.
The Urban Transport Research Group: an interdisciplinary, Faculty-based research group, in which members of the School’s staff participate, focuses on urban transport policy and planning issues. Funding for recent projects has been received from the National Department of Transport and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality.
Documenting Modernism in Cape Town Project – NRF Team Project: Prof. L.P. le Grange (Grant Holder), Prof I. Low, Ms. N.F. Murray
A co-operative African initiative supported by NUFU (a Norwegian agency funding developing countries) which links schools of architecture and planning in Addis Ababa , Cape Town, Dar Es Salaam, Kampala, two schools in Nairobi, and, schools in Oslo and Trondheim, and offers a joint Masters degree.
The Land Tenure and Cadastral Systems research group has been active in research in land tenure options and investigating the interface between formal and informal structures and processes for urban informal settlement upgrading. This research also involves analysing conflicts over land as they affect the urban poor, and mechanisms of resolution. In addition, research into the fiscal cadastre and computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) has provided key input into the property valuation and taxation processes of the City of Cape Town.
Space and Transformation research group is located in the MPhil (Arch) programme which focuses on the interrelationships between social practice and material production in Cape Town.
