project: Bike Off 2 - Catalysing anti theft bike, bike parking and information design for the 21st century

This project aimed to generate a ‘Secured By Design” standard for bicycle parking and in so doing test Ekblom’s model of the ‘Conjunction of Criminal Opportunity’ as an appropriate framework for standard generation. To deliver this research the work packages identified and generated standards, using different methodologies, in order to evaluate the efficacy of the standards, and the ‘fitness for task’ of the methodologies that generated them. The standards we generate will be combined to provide a definitive ‘Secured By Design’ standard for cycle parking. [read more]

project: Designing the workhome: from theory to practice

The underlying research is based on the premise that the 'workhome' [the building that combines dwelling and workplace] is an old but little written about or understood building type that has existed for hundreds, if not thousands, of years and continues to exist all around us in our cities, towns and villages. The history of this building type was traced from medieval times to the present day in England. An investigation of the contemporary form of the workhome was made through an analysis of the lives and premises of 76 home-based workers in urban, suburban and rural contexts in England.

project: Grippa - concept proofing and testing of anti-theft furniture accessories and design process documentation

The DAC Research Centre in partnership with the UCL Jill Dando Institute for Crime Science and in collaboration with Elisava school of design (Barcelona), worked with two bars in London (Wetherspoons) and two bars in Barcelona (Glaciar and Horiginal) to assess the usability of the latest DAC bag hanging Grippa design prototypes, for both bar customers and staff. Four bag hanging objects and five graphic communication proposals were tested during the two-month period in order to learn about the public responses to the designs, across the cultures of these two metropolitan cities.

project: Practical Design for Social Action (PRADSA)

This project is concerned with designing and using digital technologies in ‘social action’, e.g. in voluntary and community groups, trade-unions, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and civil society generally. It builds upon the previous successful ‘Technology and Social Action’ research cluster. Together with a network of practitioners who are working in these areas, we are exploring new design practices, devising and sharing new technical and social solutions and building a new community researching these problems together.
