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.

This week Laura our RKEO attended the Digital Health and Care Conference organised by Holyrood Connect and sponsored by InterSystems. This year there was a strong focus on the paradigm shift of care from centralised systems into the peripheries of the community and the need for services to integrate more widely. Over the course of the two days, there were various speakers each contributing to the theme of integrated and person-centred care. Our Programme manager Chaloner Chute gave an ‘art of the possible’ presentation demonstrating how the re-design of services could impact care and specifically how this could benefit the citizen at the heart of the care model. Several break-out sessions were also held to give focussed insights into the work that various groups are doing in the digital and care landscape in Scotland.
