The Design Lectorate (launched September 2017) nurtures a research culture at KABK with the goal of enriching creative practices, sharpening research-informed pedagogy, and contributing to knowledge.

The project at its centre, titled ‘Design and the Deep Future’, in acknowledgement of the geologic concept of deep time, is situated at the intersection of design history, creative practice research, and the environmental humanities. It was created to prompt KABK students and staff to engage with expanded timescales and to contribute alternative imaginaries to environmental and climate justice research.

Through supervising staff research projects and sharing processes, methods and outcomes in a range of participatory and publishing initiatives, as well as providing strategies and tactics for integrating research in the curriculum, the Design Lectorate increases the visibility and accessibility of research within the KABK learning community and beyond.
