The discussion after the 2.6 session and at the workshop with Johan Van Den Berghe. The two occasions provided the situation when an evaluator puts forward his own practice or opinion as an argument.
… DDr opens the way to the everyday vision of things which give the opportunity to see the problems through the urban dynamics…
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…
Impact was primarily triggered by insightful feedback during my and other sessions.
The set up of the discussion during a PhD presentation about the role of drawing: as a revealing process vs a generative tool and approach for the design driven research.
Cross referencing of methodologies across disciplines
The exhibition in the artefacts room, the workshops, discussions with other participants and panel members, the broad spectrum of the DDDr.
Being able to talk about (& around) something which is actually present, instead of only represented, makes a lot of sense in our research community. Experiencing it around my own artefact and witnessing presentations of others, helped me to think more about how to communicate with and the autonomy of the research production.
For me is in the format and the atmosphere CA2RE/+ is able to build: there is a commonality of aims that helps to focus and to create a creative and productive environment.
Rather than being a simple event, the last CA2RE+ conference represented an immersive learning environment, in which relational and behavioral factors counted more than specific content ones.
The impact was perceived the first day, when the conference was introduced by the “role-play” session. This was a sort of orientation and, perhaps more, was a calibration of expectations and tool for initial orientation and self-criticism. I would say that each presentation, given the quality of the reviewers, offered a portal to the character of “impact” and its synthesis into other aspects of the conference and presentations…in that way the conference positively built upon itself.
…by the design-practice related research projects, which constantly not only produce new content, but also develop new ways of researching it…
