Institutional Forms & Practices studies the diverse spatial forms and social practices of architecture and urban design in relationship or resistance to the institutions and institutionalisations that shape them.
The Laboratory for Design and Machine Learning is formed of a multi-disciplinary team working on experimental and fundamental research into new methodologies and knowledge needed for emerging design processes at the intersection of machine learning, data processing and visualisation, and legal and developmental frameworks.
