The Evidence Based Design Journal‘s aim is to bridge data-based research with current design practice, positively impacting the health and well-being of building occupants. Darragh O’Brien, managing editor of the journal has analyzed the Melbourne School of Design. Read his full review of the MSD–four years after its completion–HERE.

“In an iterative world, MSD now provides a tempting target for future detailed research into the relationship between collaborative activity and spatial organisation, where the void is the device by which we can create and perceive a complex network of relationships. Ideas are not forced, they brush off on us through constant exposure, over time.”
