This work includes a set of case studies that shed light on design research labs in architecture schools and takes as the final object of study Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design Research Units that collectively form the Design Lab (D-Lab). We examine each of its six subgroups current research activities with a focus on their work spaces with the aim of uncovering whether their current venues successfully serve to advance innovative and speculative research and enable design as an agent of change in society.
