Architecture and the Culture of Interdisciplinarity (ACID)

 

Architecture and the Culture of Interdisciplinarity (ACID)

Architecture and the Culture of Interdisciplinarity (ACID) undertakes architectural research which embraces alternative methodologies in fine and visual arts. Researchers in the group use drawing, architectural design, creative writing, documentary making and filmmaking as the media through which to undertake and explore the possibilities of architectural research.

The research outputs therefore vary in their medium of presentation from conventional academic papers to discourse drawings to architectural propositions to short stories and films about architectural theory. The work undertaken in ACID expands the postgraduate course P30009 (DS1 studio) and P30026 Research Philosophy for Design and P30032 Research-led Design.

The aim of ACID is to expand commonly used research methods concerned with the study of architecture, space and landscape so as to explore the possiblity and impact of architectural research on culture at large. Research undertaken by ACID is humanities based and purposefully critical and experimental.
