Our research transforms cities, in all of their complexity.
Creative and critical research empower us to reimagine the needs, challenges and aspirations that enliven cities. Working with diverse communities and cultures, and across constructed and ecological environments, our research helps to propel us all towards greater sustainability, understanding and equity.
Exploring how an increased work from home population changes the impacts, needs, and opportunities for 20-Minute Neighbourhoods.
Creating 20-minute resilient neighbourhoods and building community connectedness in Melbourne’s outersuburban growth areas.
The most authentic experience yet of being a passenger in a fully autonomous vehicle using a combination of real world driving and augmented reality visualisation.
How architectural drawings emerged as aesthetic objects, promoted by a network of galleries, collectors, and institutions, and how this changed the understanding of architecture.
Assessing Melbournian’s neighbourhood sentiment through social media and the influence of the built environment on this satisfaction during Melbourne’s Covid-19 lockdowns.
Analysing how evaluation and learning from public housing urban renewal informs current policy and delivery.
Developing a governance model to build connections between infrastructure planning and strategic urban planning.
Reducing non-communicable diseases and health inequities for English city regions and Melbourne.
Deferring to more lights and brighter cities does not create safer spaces for women and girls. Lighting design is vital for gender-sensitive cities.
Modelling autonomous vehicle-induced urban growth and inform land use based policy measures to minimise their effects on transportation.
Assisting policymakers in assessing the risk of employment vulnerability as the impacts of Covid-19 evolve.
Engaging users of Net Zero Precincts to have a say on the privacy of their data.
Uncovering how the safety of women and girls is challenged in public transport spaces.
Investigating how rail carriage interior design influences passenger boarding and alighting times using agent-based modelling techniques.
Improving sanitation, mitigating flooding, and improving dwelling and open space provision for informal settlements.
A new book providing the first comprehensive account, and theorization, of oral history as a method in architectural research.
Exploring how urban development can achieve water sensitive outcomes through planning at a range of scales.
Our research helps to create safer, healthier communities and transform the way medical treatment is experienced.
Creative practice research involves investigating how health practices and environments affect people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and asking how things might be done differently. Taking an integrated approach to human health, we work closely with stakeholders to create safer, more efficient and more comfortable environments and health systems.
We create visionary and speculative research that considers not only what technologies can do, but what they make possible.
We go beyond predictive statements about how new technologies will impact society and individuals. Our experimental research explores how people will use technologies in our future cities, cultural practices, work, and homes, and advances a more equitable, responsible and sustainable future.
Bold, ambitious and creative research comes in many forms, and unconventional thinking is critical to anticipate as yet unimagined futures. Creativity and coherence accordingly form a mutually supportive partnership at Monash Art, Design and Architecture, helping us to realise truly change-making, excellent research.
