CA²RE is a joint platform for research in all fields of architecture, design and arts, and supports early-career researchers and PhD students to improve the quality of their research within the realm of Design Driven Research.
The CA²RE+ Strategic Partnership builds on the experience of the CA²RE community and its biannual Conferences on Artistic and Architectural Research since Autumn 2016, organized in association with ARENA (Architectural Research European Network Association), EAAE and ELIA. It comprises 9 European Universities and is running for 3 years. Its backbone is a series of biannual international and intercultural INTENSIVE STUDY PROGRAMMES for doctoral candidates, guided by experienced evaluators from participating universities and invited experts.
The 8th CA²RE conference together with the 3rd CA²RE+ event series is promoted by the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DAStU) and the PhD Program in Architectural, Urban and Interior Design of Politecnico di Milano. The main topic of the event is COMPARISON. The focus will narrow by comparing design strategies and tactics applied to highlight common approaches and methodological recursions.
