Live+Smart Research Lab
The Live+Smart Research Lab is a multidisciplinary research hub that focuses on applied research for a rapidly urbanised world. The vision of the lab is to deliver applied research and concepts that are grounded in achieving healthy, sustainable, adaptive, and resilient outcomes for the future. We leverage impactful research in biophilia and biophilic design, integral whole-systems thinking, regenerative-adaptive design, and scenario planning to make this goal a reality
The MInD (Mediated Intelligence in Design) Lab is a practice-based and trans-disciplinary research group based in the School of Architecture and Built Environment. The Lab explores how design and technology can innovate for an agile, adaptive, responsive, and intelligent ecosystem.
Through close partnerships with industry and research networks, including the Resilient Urban Ecosystem (RUE) network and the European Institute of Design, MInD Lab researchers explore new models of imagining, creating and operating for a socially inclusive, and economically and environmentally viable built environment
HOME is a research centre with a single core aim of a home for all. Bringing together experts from architecture and urban planning, the humanities and social sciences, and health and social development, HOME seeks to address the causes and outcomes of social polarisation in the built environment.
Architecture Vacancy Lab
Architecture Vacancy Lab examines real and critical gaps in the knowledge and creative practice of architecture and architectural education. Vacancy evokes an approach to this research focus: poetic, practical, provocative and intellectual, with an aim for an intensity of architectural intent. Research projects loosely align with three focal areas in vacant spaces, critical vacancy and research-teaching openings.
