Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

In this book, Environmental Design is defined in socio-spatial and socio-behavioral terms. The book presents a whole that aims at the student with little or no experience in environmental design. It emphasizes the strong relationship between human factors and environmental design. The book is based on several ideas and approaches developed by several theorists in the field, with an attempt to simplify those ideas for beginning design students. It includes four chapters: 1) Design, Culture, Architecture, and the Human Science; 2) Design Components of the Built Environment; 3) Designing Built Environments; and 4) Concepts and Principles in Architecture and Urban Design.
