Inaugural DRC Colloquium – 2/3 October 2015

Members of the Adelaide design community are invited to attend the first DRC Colloquium. The Design Research Collective (DRC) is the home of Design Research activities at the School of Architecture and Build Environment at the University of Adelaide. The DRC aims to develop a community of designers whose research not only raises the quality of debate around the built environments in Adelaide and beyond, but also engages in its production.

This inaugural DRC Colloquium is primarily the space where current and potential candidates present their research proposals to an esteemed panel for review. The PhD by Design Research provides an exhilarating new opportunity in Adelaide for  practitioners to become part of a dynamic community of designers who investigate their practice through the critical framework of a PhD.
