Design Research Collective

Design Research encompasses the methods and outputs of investigations that contribute to new knowledge through the creation of design projects. The home of Design Research at the University of Adelaide is the Design Research Collective (DRC).

The DRC aims to develop a community of designers whose research not only raises the quality of debate around the built environment, but also engages in its production. The DRC’s activities include support for PhD by Design candidates, including the testing and dissemination of their work through the biannual DRC Colloquium. Interested architects, landscape architects and urban designers are invited to contact the DRC.
