KADK’s research profile covers a broad academic field in the areas of architecture, design and preservation. The academic scope reflects a societal need to work with form-related issues in a broader social, cultural and aesthetic context. The academic scope is also a prerequisite to support KADK’s rich educational portfolio with research-based education.
KADK have a particular responsibility to disseminate knowledge and new artistic research for developmental environments, companies and organisations, to peers in our areas of practice and to society at large. With our roots in a rich Danish tradition and history, KADK wish to play a crucial role in the debate about innovative and artistic research models, sustainable physical environments, values and objects, which help to shape our understanding of the past and visions for the future.
KADK is in the process of developing a new, cohesive research strategy to replace the schools’ previous strategies. See our approach to research in our seven departments:
