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.

The Exploratory on Smart Care in a Homely Setting was arranged on the 4th May 2016 at Maxim park by the Digital Health and Care Institute. The aim of the event was to explore what care currently looks like in a homely setting, to identify citizens' and carers' needs as well as pin point potential areas for innovation to go forward. The theme covered both homes and care homes, and other home-like settings where care is being given. The findings from the Exploratory informed key themes for a follow up event, an Ecosystem organised on the 6th of June. The overall "Care in a homely setting" -program will yield Information to ideate alternatives for future home services. This document summarises the key outputs from the focus group activities arranged on the day.
