ARC: Processes & Practices

This theme seeks to understand the many ways architecture can be created in the 21st century.

This research looks at the diversity of processes that shape our built environment, aiming to increase our understanding of the practical world of making architecture. We achieve this through a blend of both theory and practice.

This theme explores philosophical, political, and social theories that engage with these problems. 

It encompasses diverse sites of enquiry, including:

  • frameworks, procedures, and specifications within industries and construction processes
  • understandings of architectural practice as social and political process/endeavour 
  • ethnographic explorations gaining insights from everyday realities and informal settlements
  • architectural pedagogies as testing ground for student-led participatory projects
  • drawing as site of enquiry
