Forskning og kunstnerisk udvikling

På Institut for Bygningskunst og Design arbejder vi med etablere stærke samarbejder omkring instituttets forskningsområder, som knyttes tæt til den daglige undervisning på vores bachelor- og kandidatprogrammer. Vores målsætning er at styrke partnerskaber på tværs af instituttets discipliner på KADK og eksternt med andre forskningsinstitutioner, virksomheder og industrien.

Vi praktiserer både kunstnerisk og videnskabelig forskning og har fokus på samfundsmæssige udfordringer såsom bæredygtighed, velfærdsdesign, privacy og tilgængelighed. Vi er i gang med at udvikle en ny forskningsstrategi, der tager udgangspunkt i tre centrale forskningsprojekter: 'Privacy', 'Inclusive Design' og 'Spaces of Danish Welfare'. Derudover er det målet at etablere clusters, der centrerer sig omkring temaer som lys, materialer og tektonik, repræsentation og virtual reality, mode og identitet, Co-design, metode og strategisk design

Privacy

Centre for Privacy Studies examines how ideas about privacy formed the relationship between the individual and society from 1500-1800. In architecture, privacy is a central concept, also in a contemporary context, where notions of surveillance, security and privatisation of the public spaces are being debated. Privacy is not only a matter of physical separation, but about many other aspects that are important to take into consideration when designing and organising today's space.

Inclusive Design

With this research project, we wish to design ideas and processes that promote inclusion and equality in relation to the built environment. We study spatial conditions for inclusion through the perspective of architecture and its related design elements and contexts. We engage with society’s challenging issues by taking an inclusive approach to research. We develop methods and tools that are empathic but also innovative, through which we seek an alternative insight into the way differences, vulnerability and sensitivity in design lead to environments with more potentials.

Spaces of Danish Welfare

How does architecture and design, buildings and cities, interior details and urban planning, in other words, spatial organisation, impact welfare? And how have ideas about welfare changed the spatial organisation of Denmark? These are the core questions in the research project Spaces of Danish Welfare, which seeks to analyse, visualise and discuss the spatial dynamics and effects of contemporary transformations of Danish welfare systems.
