Publications by Research x Design


The Research by Design cluster performs translational research through the practices of making as research rather than through traditional forms academic research. It links the importance of creating, drawing, and building with rigor, originality, and significance to produce innovative and creative designs that shape the built environment.  Located strategically between the North-South axis of rapidly urbanizing Asia and the East -West line of the tropical equator, the Research by Design cluster performs research through practice in three main themes:

- novel aesthetics of climatic calibration and performance;
- contemporary architectonics of fabrication, material, and resources contingent on South East Asia
- emergent spaces of inhabitation and production surrounding the equator.
