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 Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) Executive team held a meeting at the DHI Maxim offices on the 19th January 2016. HIS had requested to find out more about the DHI and its innovation process, and to gauge collaboration opportunities with the DHI. The Research and Knowledge Exchange team (TD, SR, AW) prepared an interactive Exploratory/design workshop for the afternoon on topics identified as relevant by the HIS-team: Innovative solutions for frail people in the community and preventing admissions to the hospital. Members of the Project team and the Laboratory team assisted in preparing and running of the event. The preparations included planning the design of the workshop, interviewing a real-life patient for a case-study to be used in the workshop, and preparing the workshop materials (SR, AW).
