At ADRL we focus on design research – in which research must be understood as research into, for and through design (Frayling,1993) as a way of creating new knowledge or testing existing knowledge in local context through a systematic investigation.

For this purpose, the lab collaborates with academics, practitioners, researchers, public and private stakeholders, and students to produce cross-disciplinary knowledge pertaining to the design of the built environment – starting from the local and extending into the global context. Currently the research is focused on Public Spaces, Housing, Architectural Heritage and Natural, Rural and Urban Ecologies.

ADRL is a research initiative by the Department of Architecture, Indus Valley School of Arts and Architecture.
