RMIT University Press is back with a bang and a new series of books focused on design research marking the revival of the RMIT Publishing Imprint.
Design is one of RMIT University’s key research areas, and the new book series highlights this institutional strength and influence. Drawing on the support of an editorial advisory board made up of design experts within the University and from as far afield as Hong Kong, the USA and the UK, the series addresses questions about design research and delves into the different types of thinking and communicating that define top designers and researchers in the field.
Based in Australia, but drawing on global design initiatives, this forward-thinking series begins with two compelling offerings:
- At home in sprawl: selected essays on architecture by Aaron Betsky
(Director of the Cincinnati Art Museum)
- Porosity: the architecture of innovation by Richard Goodwin (Professor at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW).
RMIT Publishing recently launched Richard Goodwin’s innovative book at the RMIT Graduate Research Conference in June.
Building on this momentum is the imminent release of a further two books in the series:
- Live projects: designing with people edited by Melanie Dodd, Fiona Harrisson and Esther Charlesworth (RMIT Architecture)
- Architectural projections by Andrew Benjamin (Professor of Critical Theory at Monash University).
All the books in this design series should be of interest to both researchers and practitioners in the field or anyone with an interest in how design impacts on our lives.
Considering that the publishing industry is mainly making headlines for job cuts and losses at the present time, RMIT Publishing is proud to be forging this exciting new path and passionately publishing books on design and research.
