Through experimentation and open-ended research into the social, environmental and economic workings of urban societies, DAB design researchers are at the forefront of enhancing academic and professional knowledge of the design discipline.
Coming from a traditional approach centred on the history and theories of design, research at DAB now has new strengths in digital media research and the history of critical theory. Please visit our Design research section for more information.
School of Design staff are members of a number of active DAB research clusters to further grow our research output, and to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Research at DAB is uniquely supported by DAB Lab.
