The subject examines research as a mode of practice that develops and shapes the discipline of architecture. The subject engages with the way research has become central to agendas in architectural education and professional practice, and in architecture's engagement with broader frameworks of research and innovation.

The subject is structured around a series of case studies of research in architecture. These are introduced through lectures, with tutorials allowing students to discuss and critique the cases through key texts and documents. This structure allows students to understand and develop their own research agenda, to use this as a way of navigating and strategising their subject choices within their Master of Architecture education, and to have an orientation towards the developing future of architecture.
