Abstract

The paper presents a theoretical framework and methodology for architectural research that locates and extracts individual accounts from architects identified as critical leaders, artists, and thinkers about how architectural knowledge might be better applied in dynamic inner-city development contexts. The paper discusses methods to translate individual tacit knowledge to inform knowledge practice based on concepts of transformative knowledge, linked to process and transformative vocation (Unger 1987). The paper compares and contrasts this approach with more instrumental knowledge, linked with products or proprietary architectural research for specialized problem-solving (Wortham 2007, 46). These are aspects of knowledge and research in architecture whose definition and value have been evolving, contentiously at times, from the post-war era into the twenty-first century (Stevens et al. 2009, 1–2; Robinson 1990).
