Provides critical analysis, evaluation and further development of the design practice paradigm of producing knowledge and value through the medium of design itself. d___Lab.Meta provides the framework for the Practice Research Symposia (PRS) ecology of design practice PhD programs.
The Design Practice Research team is d___Lab’s conceptual, methodological and operational meta-research nucleus. It uses d___Lab’s clusters, nodes and projects as well as the comprehensive ecology of six PRS (Practice Research Symposia) per year as specific design practice laboratories which provide material for reflective case-studies and extended samples for reflection on the design practice research model in general. The DPR team thus aims at critical analysis, evaluation and further development of the design practice paradigm.
