Research in Practice

12-14 NOV 2018  Int. Conference on Practice-Based Research at the Academy

Location:  Alexandria, WAAC

VT is hosting a cutting-edge forum of globally distinguished practitioners and researchers in architecture and design to explore a radical research innovation:

Practice-Based Research  –  the pursuit of knowledge where the research occurs through creative production  in the medium of one’s creative practice. Conventional assumptions concerning the clear separation of the researcher and the researched break down.

The Conference aims to take this research model to the next level, to explore its game-changing nature and its implications for the nature of the university:  It will focus on new forms of knowledge-production, the consequences of falling walls between the academy and the world of practice at large and the capacity of the model to fundamentally innovate university education in the 21st Century.
