What is Re: Research?

Re: Research is the theme for the 2017 International Association of Societies of Design Research (IASDR) conference. 

Just as the term 'design' has been going through change, growth and expansion of meaning, and interpretation in practice and education—the same can be said for research.

The traditional boundaries of design are dissolving and connections are being established with other fields at an exponential rate. At the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) we are uniquely positioned to address these changes and challenges.

Join us in 2017 to discuss the array of possibilities for design and design research in the century ahead. Come benefit from all that our college, university, and the city of Cincinnati have to offer—as celebrated locations for the study, practice and business of design and design research.
