Critical Research in Digital Architecture

The research group CRIDA engages in digital research and teaching projects as vehicles for critical inquiry and development of innovative design practices at various scales supported by digital media in architecture, urban design, landscape and environmental design.

We are interested in development of digital technologies, their cultural implications and emerging design futures. Based in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, the group maintains collaborative links with other departments at the University of Melbourne and international institutions.

Current areas of research:

  • Design representations
  • Hybrid spatial-digital environments
  • Virtual heritage
  • Immersive information spaces
  • Generative design methods
  • Evolutionary design techniques
  • Augmented reality
  • Game technology applications
