Practical Research Is an Ongoing Discourse of Uncertainty

Jun 23, 2010

Practical research, such as the work of the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio (GCCDS), addresses complex community problems with a degree of uncertainty. The research is shaped by the needs of the community because the problems are tied into actual projects.

The GCCDS is a program of Mississippi State University’s College of Architecture, Art and Design and has provided planning, architecture and landscape architecture services to many Gulf Coast communities and non-profit organizations since 2005. The day-to-day activities are a combination of research, teaching and practice.
