About the Expanded Field Postgraduate Stream

Expanded Field is a cross-disciplinary design research stream within the RMIT School of Architecture and Design that incorporates project based design research across the disciplines of art, architecture and landscape architecture.

Instead of focussing upon the differences between the disciplines, we capitalise on the common ground: the design methods, the scales and nature of engagement, the sites for action, and the methods of production and dissemination of the research. The project is inclusive rather than exclusive. An cross-disciplinary practice can identify the gaps that conventional practice has marginalised – as fertile sites for action. Broad areas of research include public art and public space; ephemeral architectures; social, political and economic infrastructures; and a lateral approach towards social and environmental sustainability.
