Jan van Schaik awarded Philosophy PhD


We are delighted to announce that Jan van Schaik is now a Doctor of Philosophy

Jan van Schaik has been awarded a Dr of Philosophy from the school of Architecture & Design at RMIT University. His practice based research project titled “Bruegelage - Interrogations into nine concurrent creative practices”, uncovers nine sub-practices across the breadth of his creative practice: design through explicit re-working of the propositions of other architects; design through less explicit re-working; design through implicit reference to everyday objects; design through intuition and explicit strategy; design through chunking and interrupting chunking; design through a deliberate pursuit of discomfort; design through abrogation of the author; advocacy as a design process; and a practice titled ‘fake-it until you make-it', examined through a dissertation, exhibition and oral presentation.

A link to Jan's PhD document and presentation will soon be available at the RMIT University library.
