Research

Through our research labs and focus areas, Monash Art, Design and Architecture researchers work together to produce vibrant, innovative, creative research that addresses the social, economic and human issues facing Australia.

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.

Past projects

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.

Past projects

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.

Past projects

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.

Past projects
