Bridging the Gap Between Academic and Applied Research

Kursus titel:
Bridging the Gap Between Academic and Applied Research: interdisciplinary approaches for the built environment

Ansvarlig:
Olga Popovic, Professor, PhD, Architect MAA

Andreas Castberg, PhD, Civil Engineer, CCO, Business Development
Søren Jensen, Rådgivende Ingeniørfirma A/S

Kursusbeskrivelse:
This PhD course makes a connection between academic applied research closely related to practice in the context of interdisciplinarity.

Research within the built environment including architecture, architectural technology, construction, building engineering and design disciplines often deal with applied research with relevance to practice. Also, as design approaches are holistic, applied research within the built environment is often interdisciplinary combining methods, tools and approaches from specific disciplines.

Currently the importance of leading the field and creating new knowledge is not only essential for research institutions, but research and development (R&D) activities are becoming integral part of companies, studios and practices that traditionally have not been involved in research. R&D enables them to formalize their own investigations, also, link with research institutions with an aim of initiating and investigating practice-relevant research problems. The findings of these are often essential for a practice because the practice can apply the research into their everyday work becoming a leader within their applied field.

The collaborations with industry are important for an applied research project, they give an important edge of relevance and applicability as well as an opportunity to test the findings in a real-practice context. However, there are also challenges when collaborating with industry. The main challenges lie in the (often different) expectations about the real project aims, the time-scale of applicability, research methods to be used and in how the research is presented and shared within the wider research community.

This PhD course offers a platform that questions the position of an academic research project and its relationship to practice/industry within the context of interdisciplinarity.

Lectures with case-studies of completed PhD projects and research projects addressing aspects from the broad field of the built environment (architecture, architectural technology, construction, building engineering and design disciplines) will be presented followed by discussions. The following topics will be covered:

1.     Technology and art in a research project

2.     Interdisciplinary research methods and tools

3.     Parametric design tools optimizing design decisions

4.     Expectations and value systems – practice/industry v.s academic environment

In addition to the lectures, and through: discussions, a workshops, seminar and a symposium, aspects will be addressed:
Interdisciplinarity – challenge and opprtunity,
Academic v.s practice/industry relevance,
Research methods,
Time planning,
Resources (equipment, tools etc.)
Knowledge rights/intellectual ownership,
Managing expectations,
Dissemination to practice and research community,

Each lecture will be followed by a workshop with students working in groups where common opportunities and challenges of their own PhD projects will be mapped. This, will aim at identifying the topic/PhD aspect of their own PhD, each student will work with for the symposium.

For the symposium, the PhD students will be asked to prepare, write and present an essay that addresses an aspect of their PhD which will be presented. The forum of researchers, industry representatives as well as the other PhD researchers will give a critique to each presentation.

To enter the PhD course each student needs to send a 300-word abstract describing their PhD project and explaining the connection to practice/industry.

The course is intended for PhD researchers within the built environment including architecture, architectural technology, construction, building engineering and design disciplines whose research has a relevance to practice. Industrial PhD candidates are one category, but also any PhD project who works with applied research or interdisciplinarity will find this course relevant.

Kursusbeskrivelse:
Arkitektur er en bygningskunstnerisk disciplin bestående af lige dele bygning og kunst. Det forslagsstillende arbejde omhandler altid en unik genstand, det foregår i et bredt felt af videnskabelige og kunstneriske discipliner i en ikke-lineær proces. Arbejdet er kendetegnet ved – i modsætning til et videnskabeligt forsøg – at man ikke kan være sikker på at kunne gentage det og hver gang nå til det samme resultat.

Tilsvarende understreger Gadamer hvordan der inden for fænomenologien og hermeneutikken ‘… is no methodical way to arrive at the solution’. For Gadamer er fænomenologien netop kendetegnet ved, at der ikke er en metode i videnskabelig forstand.

Arkitekten og fænomenologen er enige om, at der ikke er en fremgangsmåde, der i enhver situation kan gentages og på en enkel måde entydigt beskrive hvordan man kommer fra et givent udgangspunkt til et godt resultat.

Begrebet bæredygtighed (Nachhaltigkeit på tysk) blev brugt første gang af Hans Carl von Carlowitz der i 1713 beskrev hvordan man inden for skovbrug kan lære at tænke og planlægge langsigtet og ikke kun lade sig styre af kortsigtede, økonomiske hensyn.

En tilsvarende indstilling findes hos den tyske biolog Ernst Haeckel der i 1866 dannede begrebet økologi af det græske ord oikos, der betyder 'hus, husholdning, leveområde' og logia der betyder 'lære, samling', altså læren om at holde hus.

Interessant nok er ordet skønhed etymologisk forbundet med skånsomhed idet skønhed kommer fra middelnedertysk schonen, der er afledt af schon(e) der betyder 'venlig, hensynsfuld' eller at 'behandle på en smuk måde'.

Spørgsmålet er, kan en fænomenologisk indstilling inspirere til en bæredygtig bygningskunst?

Martin Heidegger argumenterer for at skønhed er ’en måde hvorpå sandhed afdækkes’. Vores erkendelse af verden er ikke kun ren teknisk eller videnskabelig men også æstetisk. Måske er fænomenologi for Heidegger i sidste ende et etisk spørgsmål om at kultivere vores relation til verden.

Hermann Schmitz peger på at kroppen er ’en antenne med selektiv resonans, der optager og udbreder atmosfærer, der er følelser’. Måske kan kroppens direkte kommunikations-forhold med de fysiske omgivelser gennem identifikation inspirere til en mere skånsom omgang med verdens ressourcer.

Jane Bennett tror på at ‘encounters with lively matter can chasten my fantasies of human mastery’. Menneskets hovmod har bidraget til overforbrug og udpining af verdens ressourcer. Måske kan en forståelse af at være en del af en fælles materialitet få os til at handle mere bæredygtigt.

Kurset KROP – VÆRK – STOF spørger til om fænomenologien kan inspirere bygningskunsten til en mere bæredygtig brug af ressourcer og medvirke til at kultivere vores omgang med verden.

Kurset henvender sig til forskerstuderende fra design og arkitekturområdet, men kan med fordel tages af forskerstuderende fra humaniora og socialvidenskab. Fælles er interessen for fænomenologisk forskningsmetodik og for forholdet mellem et oplevet fænomen, det konkrete værk og en bæredygtig udvikling.

Kurset varer tre dage og vil have 'fænomenologiens og hermeneutikkens grundbegreber', 'post- og praksisfænomenologi' samt 'kropsfænomenologi og bæredygtighed' som temaer.

Udvalgte tekster af Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Böhme, DeLanda, Harman, Rosa, Bennett, van Manen, Petersen, Olsson, Zumthor, Eliasson m.fl., indgår i et kompendie formet specifikt til kurset.

Kurset er struktureret omkring forelæsninger og oplæg fra kursusarrangøren om formiddagen og øvelser/diskussioner med udgangspunkt i kompendiets tekster om eftermiddagen. Kursusdeltagerne skal inden kursusstart have forberedt sig ved at læse kompendiets tekster og have lavet en lille hjemmeopgave i form af et oplæg, gerne med relation til eget Ph.D.-projekt.

A Guide to a Succesful PhD Thesis: Connecting Structure, Research Methods and Management

Kursus titel:
A Guide to a Succesful PhD Thesis: Connecting Structure, Research Methods and Management

Ansvarlig:
Emanuele Naboni

Kursusbeskrivelse:
The aim of this course is to support Ph.D. students wishing to conduct research within the Design Disciplines. The objectives of the course are three:

1) It grants breadth, fostering the development of a Ph.D. thesis Structure.
2) It gives depth, by converging on the development of customised Research Methods for the Design and Scientific Disciplines
3) It finally addresses all the aspects of the Management of a Thesis.

From the introduction to conclusions, producing a Thesis Structure is a hurdle. The course, uniquely based on participants' thesis work, proposes a step-by-step guide to devising a Structure that strengths Parts and Chapters organisation and connections. Either Ph.D. Researchers have just started their Ph.D., or are closing it; each participant will grasp the essential, iterative process by which research Questions generate Knowledge.

Critical to the Process is the vast range of Research Methods suitable for the diverse array of topics germane to Design Research (e.g. Qualitative Research design, Correlational, Experimental, Simulation, Case Studies, Research by Design). When logical, participants will be seeking ways to marshal the benefits of two or more Research Methods applied to their investigations.

Weaved with Structure and Methods, is the “Thesis’ Management”. It is here set a high emphasis on the "adventure" of being a research student. It is addressed how to get started, get through revisions, face deadlines and how to regulate the workload. The issues of working with supervisors, the varied stakeholders (comprising the ones of industrial Ph.Ds.) and the final examiners, is treated. The topic of dissemination along and after the Ph.D. is also debated.

The course offers a cohesive approach that will help you succeed. The course lasts a week. The spine-bone of the course is the Structure of the thesis.  A full day is centred on a review of the strengths and weaknesses of Research Methods when applied to an individual Ph.D. work. At the end of the course, students will pair Structure and Methods with the aid of a User-Friendly Graphical Tool. The “Thesis Management” is thoroughly discussed accompanying the days of the course.

Forskning & Samfund

Kursets titel:
Forskning & Samfund – et arbejdsseminar om forskningens rolle i samfundet, vidensbegreber og metodik set gennem en erhvervsforskningsoptik

Ansvarlig:
Jonna Majgaard Krarup i samarbejde med Camilla Hedegaard Møller

Øvrige undervisere:
Camilla Hedegaard Møller et al. (TBC)

Kursusbeskrivelse:
Der er i disse år en generel orientering mod erhvervsforskning og flere samarbejder mellem academia, virksomheder, fonde og offentlige beslutningstagere. Dette viser sig bl.a. i en stigende andel erhvervs-ph.d.-studerende på eksempelvis Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole i København.

Det skal ses i relation til fremkomsten af den Neo-institutionelle vidensinstitution, hvor de organisationsstrukturer som karakteriserer Modus 1 (vidensproduktion defineret og løst i en primært homogen akademisk og disciplinær styret kontekst) enten allerede er eller søges afløst af Modus 2 (en ’praksis-baseret’, transdisciplinær vidensproduktion, formateret i netværksbaserede ad-hoc projekter og karakteriseret ved at inddrage interessenterne i dens bedømmelse).

Når man spørger til erhvervsforskning i arkitektfaget, spørges der eksempelvis også til opfattelser af viden og produktion af viden. Hvad betyder det at erhvervsforskningen indeholder kommercielle interesser? Hvordan relaterer forskningen sig til udviklingsarbejde og branding hos partnervirksomhederne? Hvordan organiseres erhvervsforskningen i hverdagen, hvilke metoder anvendes og udvikles? Hvordan samarbejdes der?  Hvordan kommunikeres, indlejres og omsættes denne type forskning? Hvad med forskningsfrihed og grundforskning?

Spørgsmålene undersøges gennem oplæg, litteratur og deltagernes kritiske refleksion over egen erhvervsforskning indenfor arkitektur og byggeri og de mulige implikationer for kvaliteten og karakteren af arkitekturforskningen.

Exploring New Materialism lll: Ecology and Resonance

Kursus titel:
Exploring New Materialism: Ecology and Resonance

Ansvarlig:
Henrik Oxvig (Lektor, KADK)
Martin Søberg (Adjunkt, KADK)

Øvrige undervisere:
Ulrik Schmidt (Lektor, RUC)
Stine Sundahl (Ph.d.-studerende, KADK)
Erich Hörl (Professor, Leupana Universitetet i Lüneburg)

Kursusbeskrivelse:
This course explores the implications of New Materialism philosophy for theory, criticism and practice in the fields of architecture, art, archeology and social science with particular attention to ecology and resonance. It includes a masterclass with philosopher and cultural theorist Erich Hörl, coeditor of General Ecology: The New Ecological Paradigm (Bloomsbury 2017).

Scholarship acknowledging ecologies, affordances as well as material and social relations – e.g. how material connections and resonance between them are established in the world - has gained a strong foothold through writers such as Jakob von Uexküll, James J. Gibson, Gilles Deleuze, Bruno Latour, and, more recently, Timothy Morton and Hartmut Rosa. As part of the course, we will be reading texts by Gibson and Rosa along with related texts by thinkers such as Jane Bennett, Donna Haraway, Manuel DeLanda, Graham Harman and Bruno Latour.

We are interested in discussing the concrete integration of ecological and resonant thinking in contemporary artistic, human and social research: How can an attention for material life and agency guide the empirical study of cultural artifacts? And how can empirical studies contribute to expanding, questioning and potentially renewing our thinking and concepts? How do notions of ecology and resonance define material and social assemblages, which could consist of climate, buildings and occupants? How does New Materialism approach spatial, material and social aspects in the analysis of ecologies and other types of connections?

The course consists of four all-day sessions during January 2020, including reading sessions and master class. The reading sessions are intended as a preparation for the master class which will be structured around lectures by senior researchers followed by paper presentations by PhD students, discussion and feedback. The focus is on the integration of ideas and perspectives from or related to New Materialism into the student’s own research with particular attention to notions of ecology and resonance.

PhD candidates interested in contributing to methodological and interdisciplinary debates on New Materialism and ecologies should submit a 300-word abstract of their research and a short CV. The course is organized in collaboration with Roskilde University, Department of Communications and Arts.

Eva Brandt, Professor, Designskolen Kolding
Sissel Olander, PhD, Associate Professor, KADK 

Kursusbeskrivelse:
The choice of Ph.d. research methodology or approach(es) largely influences the results and arguments one is able to make.

Within design research, during the last decades research-through-design (Frayling 1993) or more broadly practice-based approaches have been emphasized and richly elaborated. It is for example elaborated as programmatic and experimental design research, etc. The course has a special focus on research programs and how practices of making – often described and considered as experiments – play a core role in the development of new knowledge.

During this Ph.d. course we will give an overview of these different developments and characteristics of research-through-design - especially in a Scandinavian perspective.

The course is comprised of a two-day Symposium (2 ECTS) followed by a later two-day Seminar (2 ECTS).

The Symposium includes: invited lecturers introducing and engaging in dialogue about different perspectives on and characteristics of research-through-design – with special focus on ‘research programs’ and experiments; smaller reflective exercises and a hands-on workshop / meta-experiment to assist the participating Ph.d. scholars in elaborating their own approach and position in relation to parts of the course literature.

The later Seminar includes: group analysis, discussion and presentation – in a methodological perspective - of a collection of research-through-design Ph.d. dissertations. Additionally, the participating Ph.d. scholars will present their own position in terms of research approach(es) and roles of the practical work, and will give and get verbal individual feedback from staff and one other student.

Preparation prior to the Symposium and the Seminar will be rather substantial in terms of readings. A compendium of texts will be provided as well as a few selected concluded PhD dissertations. Each student is to read one of these dissertations intentionally matching the student’s research interests. Preparation for the Seminar also includes individually making a theoretically and practically grounded presentation of one’s own research methodology / approach(es) and giving feedback to one other student.
