Across different research registers, the Klumpner Chair engages in analysis, research-based design and applied research that interrogate existing programs or sites. A primary aim is to develop innovative urban concepts and scenarios.

Research takes place in the context of PhD student work, method-design and process-oriented teaching, and through project development. Outputs include exhibitions, publications, and film screenings.
