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.

What does the right to health mean to people who face inequalities and may struggle to access support? This is a pressing issue in Scotland where there is a national commitment to human rights, but where deep seated health inequalities are a major public health concern. The right to the highest attainable standard of health is recognised within the European Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and should be equally available, accessible, acceptable and of good quality to everyone.
