The Art & Design Research Institute (ADRI) is the home of research in art, design, visual culture and electronic arts, comprising world leading research and innovative practice at Middlesex University.
Art and Design Research at Middlesex rated “internationally excellent” and “world leading”.

Students are encouraged to work collaboratively, and we currently have projects with the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (MoDA), National Maritime Museum, Sir John Soane's Museum and Tate.
ADRI has several staff-led research clusters:
