The phrase 'Design is Research' characterises the activity at the Abedian School of Architecture for 2014, which aims to render productive results at the intersection of practical and scholarly investigation. The 2014 Lecture Series presents academics and practitioners working on substantive questions and issues of formal, technical, and cultural concern through their own form of research methodology.
