Trondheim 2020

Perhaps due to the fact that this conference was online, in this edition, I concentrated more on the interventions of the presenter and the other panel members. I guess this was because there were no other ‘visual distractions’ (setting, audience). This context made me pay more attention to the content of the comments and I was struck by the wealth of approaches that occur in the panel members’ interventions. I think I was more sensitive to the diversity of evaluation.

… I also think we should not aim to immediate impact of procedure but to develop knowledge in a more sophisticated (and unavoidably indirect) manner.

… It helped me to grasp and see the design research in my research.

This event with the title “Sharing” made it more clear, what the involved researchers and institutions understand by “design-driven” in research.

… Martin discussed the possibility of the design work as a starting point for research for his project on landscape architecture. In the discussion the panel members urged him to get rid of the question mark, to clearly state that the design work is the starting point for research. It is not useful to make a distinction between “alternative” research and traditional research. There is only research and if its not rigorous its not research. /…/, said one of the panel members. Don`t be concerned about if what you are doing is research, but be aware if you are rigourous or not. Design should be the starting point of the research, then observe the actions. Then observe the observations and new design actions emerge out of this process. This has to be done with rigour and this rigour comes from the researcher, and from the interactions between the researcher and the research community. Sharing in a conference like this is a way to check if your project is rigorous. /…/ Maybe it will impact in the way that I stop constantly worrying about whether what I am doing is research, and rather pay attention to my own rigorousness in the process. Maybe doing a phd is about learning how to become rigorous?

Impact was primarily triggered by insightful feedback during my and other sessions.

… Attending the presentations and workshops gave me the confirmation that design, only if accompanied by theoretical study, can give impulses and contributions to research.

Especially while I was listening to the phd proposal “Material map” I was inspired by the methodology and methods to deconstruct architecture projects and focusing on the materiality…

Criticisms for some researches like Joel’s SF arch. pedagogy the trio’s time capsule Eszter’s games for self-consciousness are examples we can see the concern for impact.

… one aspect that was really stimulating was seeing the different and (mostly complementary) interpretations of the presentations by the reviewers in terms of the chosen methods research agendas and the definition of practice.

I received emails from participants in which they confirm the impact my interventions have had on their research and their growing insights.

The most evident impact was a period of visiting PhD organized after the participation to the first CA2RE+ event the finding of co-supervisors that can follow me in a specific part of the research regarding the Ddr.

I plan to incorporate a stronger design perspective rather than an historical or interpretative one

I rewrote the doctoral activities on the time schedule. I also have a better idea and I feel able and more confident to develop the work that is missing (typological description from a design perspective) when I couldn’t see how to do it before the Ca2re. I also got rid of the idea that theory cannot be a design tool

The CA2RE+ conference helps me to follow, understand and reflect on the diverse landscape of DDDr. The conference thereby helps me to position myself and my own competencies, but also to challenge these and expand my horizon.

…continue the work on research with a higher awareness of fragility of the research process. This includes additional work on research development as well as development of the presentation of research since it is closely related to understanding the process of research itself.

Attending the CA2RE+ congress helped me a lot to understand and expand my idea of ​design-driven​ doctoral research. It opened my mind to a plurality of ideas … I also understood that some of the exposed methodologies would not be so difficult to transfer to my country, where architecture schools do not offer ‘research-by-design’ doctoral programs.
