    The Business of Research Symposium

    Tuesday 3 July
    2 to 6.30 pm
    Foster + Partners
    Riverside, 22 Hester Rd
    London SW11 4AN

    In preparation for our guest-edited issue of Architectural Design – titled ‘The Business of Research’ (Spring 2019) – DSDHA have assembled distinguished scholars, researchers and a number of practitioners, both in public and private fields, to discuss the emerging landscape of practice-based architectural research: a mode of working which is destabilising the deep-rooted separation between academia and practice, demanding a new definition of the term ‘research’, one that is relevant to both parties.

    Speakers included Shumi Bose, WeWork, Public Practice, OMA, Assemble, Ziona Strelitz, James Soane, Lara Kinneir and more.

    Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

    DSDHA is delighted to be one of three teams selected for the second stage of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Competition, along with Caruso St John and Latz+Partner

    The project will provide an overarching redevelopment for the hard landscape setting of the expanded Dockyard and to better integrate the buildings on site, both old and new. 

    In view of the nature of the site, its waterfront, its buildings and historic vessels, the combined goal of the collaborative approach between visual artists and winning architect is to engage a broad public in the current life, unique integrity, spatial qualities and history of the Historic Dockyard.   We will be collaborating with the acclaimed artist Nathan Coley and the landscape consultants LDA on our proposals.

    The overall masterplan is set to complete in 2017.

    Unit 11 at The Cass

    This year, DSDHA's Unit 11 at The Cass is exploring 'Above and Below', a brief that questions how infrastructure and building beneath, as well as above and around us, can influence design and how we live.

    The Unit field trip, led by Deborah Saunt, David Hills, Nicola Ibbotson and Matthew Lambert, took students to The National Gallery Scotland, where this photo of Dixon Jones' first-floor light-well was taken.
