Portsmouth School of Architecture
Research by Design
Linking education, practice and research

This two-day symposium explores the synergies between education, practice and research. Research in schools of architecture is often at multi-layered crossroads spanning several approaches, disciplines and methods. While traditional academic scholarship has been historically recognised, the links between design and research have only recently gained force.
The symposium aims to respond to the challenges encountered by the architectural research community when conducting and presenting work that involves the designing of cities, buildings, the re-use of historic sites, of placemaking, and the use of new technologies. It does so by asking:
- How can research by design be further legitimised?
- What are the methods and strategies employed to effectively create, apply, critique and share knowledge developed through practice?
- What is the future of documentation and its multifarious representations and how do we capture this process?
- How can research by design contribute in responding to contemporary global challenges?
To engage in these questions this symposium brings together world leading professionals and academics in a series of presentations, discussions and round table.
