DAP_r (Design and Architecture Practice research) provides a model that fills an internationally identified gap in postgraduate training. It is specifically aligned with the core teaching and learning components of design and architecture programs in Australia. Further, it provides a radically new way of connecting the academy with SME practitioners, locating the site of new knowledge discovery within SME studios, producing results with immediate industry impact and linking them with studio teaching. This new doctoral model involves the production of new works during the period of the PhD which are, in most cases, included in the final PhD material, and the placement of the work of the practice in a broader disciplinary context. Candidates examine and document the methods and techniques of practice as they relate to the existing and ongoing body of work. Thus, the work examines, and is also transformative of, the practice within which it is situated.
