Designing Between Disciplines


Download data is not yet available.


In some areas of life, research disciplines do not cross boundaries even though the day-to-day practices in these areas necessitate a disciplinary crossing. My architectural work within midwifery challenges this norm: as design research is 'grafted' into an established scientific field. I am an architect and antenatal teacher researching the design of birth spaces using women's experiences of birth. My work aims to move established research methodologies (midwifery and medical) towards ones that address architecture and design in these related fields.
