Research Area: Research by Design

Directors: Prof. Dr. Michael U. Hensel, Prof. Dr. Fredrik Nilsson, Prof. Dr. Birger Sevaldson

This research area was ratified and commenced in 2010.

Research by Design is a special research area in OCEAN. This involves mapping practice, research and education in the creative disciplines with particular focus on architecture and the built environment. OCEAN members have written directly or indirectly about this topic since the onset of the OCEAN network in 1994 and OCEAN's role as one key proponent in the development of research by design in architecture has been acknowledged widely. The aim is to develop this mode of inquiry in a systematic and inter- and trans-disciplinary manner.
