Exploring fieldwork 2015

Swedish Research School in Architecture

Exploring Fieldwork


April - October 2015


The course Exploring fieldwork: A critical consideration of empirical methods and habits-of-mind in design research (ECTS: 7,5) is a collaboration between ResArc and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, The Swedish Design Faculty for design Research and Research Education. The course addresses the ‘field’ or site of ‘method’ in design-led research. Broadly, we are interested in exploring the back-and-forth interaction of research intentions and practices as these shape research outcomes (knowledge production). Exploring fieldwork welcomes doctoral students from different fields of design and architectural research, including research in the arts, currently engaged in research activities that involve field work or site explorations.

Registration date: January 31., 2015.

Workshop 1: April 7-10, 2015 in Malmö

Workshop 2: August 18-21, 2015 in Copenhagen

Closing seminar: End of October, 2015
