We conduct research in architectural design innovation, robotic fabrication and sustainable prefabrication in industrialised buildings, working alongside our industry and university partners.
Our research group explores innovative design solutions for the built environment. We address many areas of research, including design innovation, robotic fabrication and sustainable prefabrication in industrialised building.
We engage with a variety of government, industry and university partners to execute our research projects. The Innovation in Applied Design Lab is embedded within our group.
Watch this space for details of the first Annual Design conference, to coincide with our school’s centenary celebrations in 2018.
