Our research activities leverage our skills and experiences as designers.
As a discipline, design functions in part as a mode of cultural communication, imaginative experimentation and personal critique of the world around us. Research is a fundamental component of the work of our community. Our research activities leverage our skills and experiences as designers, providing tools to explore the issues which inform our teaching, critical practices, and engagement with local and global communities.
