RESPONSIVE CITY. Combining Local Knowledge with Digital Systems
This theme explores the application of advanced technology – in materials and data collection – as an infrastructure for modifying living habits to reduce environmental impact, without necessarily a reduction in living standards.
more

NO SPACE WITHOUT TRAITS. Using Interdisciplinary Perspectives to Explore Spatial Character
This theme studies the characteristics of current, real-life manifestations of spatial conditions and their scales, drawing from research, fieldwork and practice in the arts and humanities, the sciences and design.

PARADISE FOUND, PARADISE LOST. Negotiating Between Growing Demands and Depleting Natural Resources
This theme explores the role of architecture, urban and landscape design in improving negotiations between a place, the natural resources that sustain it, the quality-of-life demands made on these resources by the people in that place, and the urgent environmental responsibilities of advanced societies everywhere.
more

ACTORS AND AGENCY. Co-producing the Built Future
This theme investigates the spatial design and planning toolkit needed to co-envision, co-decide and co-produce the future of the city, and to overcome the ‘expert-lay’ divide in decision-making about places and cities.
