Critical Artistic Thinking in Design
Critical Artistic Thinking in Design (CATiD) is an international, multidisciplinary research, design and consultancy hub based in Birmingham, UK.
CATiD’s research aims to place quality of life and sustainability-oriented transformation of the region at the top of the political agenda. We are doing this by investigating and proposing a new innovative and territorial approach to spatial planning and delivery: one that is based on an in depth understanding of the physical materiality of the region; its identity; and social, cultural, environmental and economic drivers. The research will help cultivate alternatives to the traditional development practices which have contributed to long-term social, economic and environmental loss or damage.
