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.

Abstract

The author answers the questions: How should the methods of environmental psychology be discussed in an interdisciplinary framework?; Does environmental psychology require some special methodological approach?; How is environmental intervention determined by interdisciplinarity?; What are these disciplines and how do they relate to one another? - based on her professional experience as a consultant and as the supervisor of a project involving community, popular housing and social exclusion in many countries of Europe. She concludes that the approaches used by the different professions are very isolated, and that having common goals is not enough: joint training and identity of values are also necessary.
