Spatial activism, the housing of displaced people, art and spatial practices based on community interventions, collaborative practices, participatory action research, social justice, ethics, emergent technologies, sustainability, indigenous thinking, kaupapa Māori methodologies and food production form the principal components to Dr Palmer's practice-based research interests.
Fleur Palmer’s approach to design aims to consider the ethical social and political impact of our presence as individuals and as communities within an overheated world that has access to finite resources. Within this context, she believes designers, play an important role in asking provocative questions to engage with new ways of thinking and art practices and alternative theoretical constructs to imagine a more vibrant future.
