Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Starting with a film presentation entitled 'Telling It As It Is', Jonathan Charley examines architecture as a capitalist process in a world of commodity production, questioning whether the profession can ever have true creative autonomy free from the influence of politics and economics. He looks at attempts at creative autonomy through cooperative working and direct action. There is a call for a united voice, organising architects as a unified body. Specially commissioned by the R.I.B.A. Dr Charley was asked to provide a critique of the state of the architectural profession from a Marxist perspective. Transcript to come.
