Research and artistic development

Because of the Institute’s research, artistic projects and close relationship with practice, in the future KADK will be able to put architecture, town and landscape development on the social agenda in terms of the development of the welfare society both in Denmark and in the rest of the world. 

The Institute’s new composition of skills in the fields of research and artistic practice will facilitate interdisciplinary research into how the evocative and communicative skills of architects are currently involved in the procedural dynamics, which are the conditions for architecture and design. 

Other questions, to which we aim at finding answers include:

  • How do architects contribute to the sustainable welfare society of the future - both in Denmark and the rest of the world?
  • How can we conceive new futures involving art, time and space?
  • What should our towns, buildings, urban spaces and landscapes look like? Why? Who are they for?
  • How do we live and how would we like to live?
  • Who decides what our houses should look like?
  • What professional skills are required to make an impact on development?
  • What is a public space in an age, in which we are rapidly shifting our attention to a digital existence?
  • What is the definition of good everyday life in the 21st century?
  • What does it mean to participate in the development of the common space?
