Why Practice-Based Research? Hear from the speakers
We asked some of our Practice-Based Research conference speakers to share their thoughts on what practice-based research is, what barriers to adoption exist, and what value research provides for firms as well as for clients and users. Why does Practice-Based Research matter? Because research is happening in design practice all the times, but capturing its value isn’t always easy or prioritized. This conference will offer models for architects to integrate research into practice and business, and to design a firm culture that fosters research.
Client Conversations spotlight clients with not only their projects, but their strategies for managing change through development and investment during these complex times. Conversations will provide insight into the capabilities and skills clients look for when selecting a design team.
