Public lecture by Sanda Lenzholzer at
Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, University of Copenhagen
What relations between designing and researching are useful and perhaps necessary to consider, when framing our actions and discourses today? The relationship between design and science has been debated in practice and academia throughout decades and in particular the notion of Research through Design (RTD) has caught attention as a respected research method. In this lecture, Sanda Lenzholzer will elaborate on the use of RTD techniques and associated methods such as Research on design and Research for design.
Based on an actualised discussion of these approaches, Sanda Lenzholzer will share her work with these methodological concepts and their implications for landscape architecture practice and education.
The lecture is part of targeted initiative concerning research integration at the landscape architecture education at UCPH, focusing on research-design-education dynamics.
