practices in Design studio has this year explored

Led by Professor Philip Goad and Professor Alan Pert, twenty-three MSD Masters’
students have examined Robin’s career chronology, with their research and exhibition
pieces presenting insights to a collection of works that sit outside the more familiar
writings and buildings.
