Taking its point of departure in a series of architectural experiments realized in the period from 2001-2011, this paper approaches the problem area of the development and application of new knowledge through design in a trans-disciplinary environment. This praxis grounded in innovation and design theory demonstrates that research from different traditions can be integrated in the design process using distinct criteria. It is thus possible, in the same process, to work with hypotheses that are tested in parallel on the basis of technical/scientific, social science and art/humanities traditions. It is also demonstrated how a procedural model derived from the trans-disciplinary experiments can be applied to the curriculum of a cross-disciplinary graduate university programme.
