Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Chapter dealing with the architectural transformation of the church from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. It identifies the complex stratification on display and highlights how conservation can be effective through design. The research is interdisciplinary, including survey, archival research and materials technology. It will contributes to the knowledge on architectural design, helping to understand better the methods, strategies and instruments used by architects over the centuries in the transformation of a place.
