Our research aims to undertake inquiry of design problems into research and contribute to design practice. The point of exploration builds around practice-based problems to advance knowledge at the academe by means of research by design through discovering new processes, tools and new understanding of design theories. By bridging the gap between academe and practice, it enables to challenge the existing theories through projects then turns into a fascinating research.
IDA's research interests fall within four focused areas: Smart hospitality, Computational Design, Sustainability and Smart Hospitality. Smart Hospitality that are focused on integrating smart and ubiquitous technologies to improve human comfort, experience, wellness and visual perception of hotel spaces; Computational Design that is centered at the intersection of the application of digital innovation management for improving and enhancing the design quality of the built and urban environment; and Sustainable design in the tropics focused on developing new knowledge, processes to address the challenges faced in creating buildings that are reactive intelligent and energy efficient.
