ADAPT-r Exhibition – 26 November until 18 December 2016
What do architects, artists, and designers actually do? What inspires them? How do they make the leaps of imagination they need to break new ground? Where do they find their ideas? How do they develop, test and share them with each other? How do they know when something’s going right?
Ambika P3 presents the ADAPT-r exhibition, exploring research processes of working artists, architects and designers – revealing the diverse approaches and how they do what they do. From digital designers to landscape architects, brand designers to design activists, painters to performance artists, and many different types of architects. The exhibition concludes an EU funded research initiative and provides rare insights through 35 international practitioners from around the globe.
The ADAPT-r exhibition offers a rich terrain of work to explore. It is divided into distinct areas charting the different stages of discovery within the creative process. Individual exhibits in the Studio show work in progress and completion by 35 practitioners, whereas Rooms reveals cross views of working together. The Library includes books and discoveries, while the Garden will be the site of a daily programme of events, including discussions, performances and screenings.
More information on the events orgainsed can be found on the AmbikaP3 website.

The ADAPT-r ITN – Architecture, Design and Art Practice Training-research – aims to significantly increase European research capacity through a unique and ground-breaking research model. At its core is the development of a robust and sustainable initial training network in an emergent Supra-Disciplinary field of research across a range of design and arts disciplines – creative practice research. ADAPT-r ITN will train new researchers, increase supervisory capacity, create partnerships with SMEs in research projects, provide substantial opportunity for real-world testing of the research and real-world training, and introduce creative practice research methodologies to a new generation of practitioners.
This unique model will also enable ADAPT-r ITN to substantially leverage the number of doctoral candidates supported within the network, maximising higher degree training opportunities. The research that is produced through the ADAPT-r ITN will contribute to a wider research effort to increase knowledge, understanding and quality of research in practice based creative disciplines and its methods. The Marie Curie ITN funding will enable an existing bi-lateral research training relationship to be expanded to include multiple partners from across Europe to create a greatly enhanced international research training network with a long-term future.
The ADAPT-r ITN will address identified deficits in EU research training for creative disciplines. Through training creative practice researchers in the explication and dissemination of tacit knowledge and latent cognitive resources, the ADAPT-r ITN will make a substantive contribution to meeting EU 2020 priorities by building a new generation of creative practice researchers and research-led practitioners able to meet the complex and often competing demands of contemporary Europe. The ADAPT-r ITN will result in 40 Fellowships, 8 training conferences, a major research conference, a major exhibition, three key books, and a website providing public access to research and events.
