The framework we have developed and the supporting case studies aim to make visible the research processes to provide an understanding of the methods that have been created and used.
Each case study comprises a description of a design-led research study articulated by the principal investigator of that study or by the research team. Intentionally the projects are broad and wide-ranging as we wanted to demonstrate a breadth of research and the methods utilised. We approached this as a research process, and our hope is to build a body of collective research practice.
Our case studies are divided into the three main domains of the framework, with each domain offering three further sections of deeper insight through answering the questions aligned to each project.
The illustrated maps accompanying the domain questions demonstrate what was happening in context with the specific moments in time along each project journey.
At the end of each case study, external links are provided to allow you to follow up or dive deeper into how these case studies were manifested.
