After the feedback, I feel confident that I am on the right track applying a phenomenological approach and using auto-ethnographical methods in my research in order to bring out deep reflections and insights from my own lived experience as a designer.
I will try to develop the theoretical point discussed during the presentation and illustrate them in a series of diagrams in order to communicate the key ideas though the design tool.
I guess to incorporate the impact of my experience by reworking my critical sense as an architect/researcher, improving my positioning with respect to the research topic, and avoiding my research becoming just a container of data.
/…/ Attending the conferences and observing the panorama allows me to have an open mind in the face of possible proposals for doctoral candidates.
at the moment, we are rewriting the doctoral regulations of our university and are leading a broad discussion on the terminology of practic-based, work-based, artefact-based research.
I will try to improve the use of the formula of discussing in front of artefact more than slides and the one of parallel panel sessions alternate with collective moments
I still have to digest the most recent feedback, and perhaps try to take the opposite direction of the intended one. /…/
amplify the experience gathered during this conference
/…/ after the CA2RE event, I felt a renovating will of experiment more in terms of performance, representation, and communication of the project. For this reason, I will continue to deepen my topic, but at the same time, I will reflect and design more also the part related to its communication and presentation.
I will further incorporate the impact in my further work by (1) my continued efforts for being open to all the signals (verbal, non-verbal and ‘between the lines’) in doctoral presentations, (2) by picking up these signals immediately and (3) by making the candidate attentive to his/her own signals in the subsequent panel conversation.
This event ensured and encouraged me to collaborate with people from different disciplines.
I am a practicing architect and I see this research impacting my future projects in their model-building investigative stage and I also want to find opportunity to teach this in Universities so that students have a way of working digitally from a standpoint of ‘live’ design objects whose material properties are attached/ engaged with space.
I will incorporate this experienced impact 1. in the theoretical reflection on DDDr describing its generative and transformative impact 2. In the institutional framing by advocating for the use of these practices in teaching and doctoral supervision 3. In organizing workshops specifically for doctoral students.
I will continue to support the theoretical, practical and institutional relevance of this kind of research and of the related initiatives. Thematically I will go deeper into the agency of practice trying also to introduce my work on “Media Agency” to the community of the design driven research. And I will write in the next months a paper on the relevance of this research.
The introductory workshop discussion, aligned around approaches, methodologies and techniques, was perfectly articulated and defined lingering topics with great clarity.
For me it is not possible to explain the clear strategy of the incorporation of these CA2RE + experiences into my overall approach.. I think that the real impact is about the sharpening of tools, both pedagogical and related to personal research engagements, it is about thinking “outside of the box” and about courage to step out of established forms of knowledge building and knowledge exchange.
… I proposed our doctorate program to build on this experience and attain this high standard of pre-event communication with external evaluators and panel members via not only book of abstracts but also framing the conference with positions that formulate starting points from the institutional side and key supervisors.
We will share the results and impact with ELIA’s working group artistic research and will invite them to be even more closely related to the event starting in Hamburg.
I plan to incorporate a stronger design perspective rather than an historical or interpretative one
… fight for the case of the design driven research in architecture at the university level
… I would like to explore the future potentials for the DD research beyond the doctoral stages.
