Abstract
The definition of design research in the realm of architectural lighting revolves around what research is, and where it belongs in design education and practice. The premise is that design research functions as a development of practice, rather than as a distraction to it. This article explores the role of design research in evolving innovative approaches towards design and the implementation of best practice. It reviews literature to identify different approaches to design research, and develops a relevant knowledge base framework by defragmenting and building upon existing bodies of frameworks. Finally, it demonstrates practical applications of this defragmented framework by analysing architectural lighting projects, which are used as case studies.
