Research in design contributes to create a better world
BAU promotes research with the goal of supporting and encouraging the curiosity of those who are convinced that design can contribute to transforming the world. The centre approaches research as a space for creative exploration at the intersection between art, science and design. A way to tackle the challenges of contemporary society using hybrid, critical and imaginative research methodologies.
Directed by Dr. Jaron Rowan, BAU Research area hosts a Doctorate Unit, which develops the Doctorate Programme in Design and Communication, and endorses a research group (GREDITS), a research unit (Institute of Political Materialities), and a publishing house (BAU Editions) with a scientific magazine (Inmaterial).
