Our research labs are at the forefront of design-driven, industry-relevant solutions, from the everyday to the complex.
Transforming how we think of art – and interact with it – in urban spaces through exhibitions, conferences and public art projects.
With a focus on history, theory, criticism, and curation, the Critical Practices Research Lab brings together scholars and practitioners from across disciplines of art, design and architecture.
Combining aesthetics and ergonomics to deliver commercially viable, user-centred medical prototypes and influence behaviour.
Investigating an emerging technological environment where automation, artificial intelligence, data and the questions of ethics, responsibility and user experience and engagement that they bring with them are increasingly central.
Applying research with built environment industries: innovation, commercialisation, collaboration.
Making design-based, action research into and within the conditions of informality in developing cities.
Integrating design and urban planning research for social justice and environmental sustainability.
Articulating the synergies between Indigenous ways of knowing with practice led research specifically in the areas of art, design and architecture (and beyond).
Operating at the nexus between design, play and technology to amplify translational research into how people learn.
