Arthi Manohar
Design Research Fellow

I am a designer, researcher and a qualified architect. I am a Research Fellow working on TAPESTRY project, funded by the RCUK Digital Economy. Before joining Northumbria, I worked at the Glasgow School of Art on an AHRC project called Leapfrog. Where I explored co-design in community engagement and creative evaluation approaches through research and project-based learning. Prior to GSA, I worked at the Mixed Reality Lab witihin the University of Nottingham. My Doctorate was a part of an EPSRC Digital Economy project ‘Tales of Things and Electronic Memories’ (TOTeM). My research explored the digital impact of technologies on communities using Participatory Research Methods and Story Cultures. I hold a Master’s degree in Architecture and Digital Media from University of Westminster, London. I also practiced architecture in various leading design and consultancy firms in the UK and India. My research interests are particularly concerned with the role of human values to change the way we engage with communities to help us be more creative, responsive and reflective by investigating the relationship between the social design and technology.
