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.
Creating 20-minute resilient neighbourhoods and building community connectedness in Melbourne’s outersuburban growth areas.
How architectural drawings emerged as aesthetic objects, promoted by a network of galleries, collectors, and institutions, and how this changed the understanding of architecture.
Analysing how evaluation and learning from public housing urban renewal informs current policy and delivery.
Deferring to more lights and brighter cities does not create safer spaces for women and girls. Lighting design is vital for gender-sensitive cities.
Uncovering how the safety of women and girls is challenged in public transport spaces.
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.
Investigating how visual images have defined, contested and advanced ideas of Australian citizenship and rights from European settlement to the present.
New methods and techniques for the analysis of historical landscapes.
