Dr Kemi Adeyeye


Senior Lecturer in Architecture with expertise in architectural design, architectural technology and integrated design and information systems.


Dr Kemi Adeyeye is a lecturer and member of the Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA) at the University of Bath. She specialises in Integrated Design: Architecture, Technology, Resilience and Sustainability.

Her academic and professional background is in architecture (integrated design), building development and adaptation, optimised delivery as well as post-occupancy processes.

She is a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

She established and leads the Water Efficiency Network. With its industry and academic members, the network proposes and promotes knowledge-based, yet practical, water (and energy) efficiency solutions for policy, industry and users.

She also edited the recently published book on Water Efficiency in Buildings: Theory and Practice.

Prior to joining the University of Bath, she was a DEFRA/EPSRC research fellow. At the University of Brighton, she was Co-Director of the advanced technologies in Built Environment, Architecture & Construction (@BEACON) research group. She also established and led the collaborative Water Efficiency Lab.


Dr Kemi Adeyeye’s recent research on resilience spans the architecture and planning subject areas, and draws on knowledge from anthropology, critical theory and tectonics, sociology and environmental psychology.

It proposes theoretical frameworks and practical guidelines for an architecture of resilience and autarky. Her research outputs target integrated solutions: people, process, product and how holistic systems-led solutions can be applied through design and planning for long-term results.

Her research also focuses on finding collaborative, sustainable solutions to water and energy resource issues and majority of this work is carried out with industry partners.

Kemi is available to supervise student research projects.
