Title Unearthing ground in architecture: ethical behaviour...physical manifestation...colour register
Author(s) Ni Eanaigh, S
Year 2018
Abstract With this PhD, I seek increased understanding on the nature of ‘design intelligence’, as evidenced by the discipline of architecture through practice.

While understanding the process of getting large buildings / infrastructure built, what interests me specifically with this research is insight into how we get as thinkers / designers / practitioners...as architects, from a site and sheet of paper with a list of rooms / schedule of accommodation, numerous prescriptive do’s + don’ts...to...‘a great blue lump of a school’*...‘a crimson creature’*... ‘design gets its full citizenship’.*

Paralleling my quest for new insight into ‘design intelligence’...spatial ... formal...visual...material...is a preoccupation with exploring the ‘physical’ in a world seemingly favouring the ‘virtual’ and specifically, the place of our visual tonal register or judgement as architects, applied to the phenomenon of...colour / light / pigment...as a medium of ‘design intelligence’ exercised through venturous practice in architecture.
