Symposium and PhD course: Models of Practice based Research in Architecture and Design

March 28, 2009

The Danish Design School, Copenhagen
On 15-16. January 2009 Katie Bunnell gave a  key note lecture on practice-based methodologies for PhD and post doctoral level craft and design research. Her presentation was split into two halfs: the first focussing on the development of a methodology for her PhD, Re-presenting Making: the integration of new technologies into ceramic designer-maker practice, in particular developing Csikszentmihalyi’s (1988) Model of Creativity and Robson’s (1996) description of Naturalistic Inquiry. The second half of the presentation provided examples of practice-based approaches developed by members of the Autonomatic team for current research projects.

There were two other key note lectures from Professor Stephen Scrivener, Director of Research at Chelsea College of Art and Design at UAL and Professor Bruno de Meulder, KU Leuven, Department of Architecture, Urbanism and Planning and presentation from Design and Architecture students.
The aim of ‘Models of Practice based Research in Architecture and Design’ was to discuss possible roles design practice can play with regard to proceedings and results of architectural and design research.
