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 IDDEAS and GDS projects seek to develop innovative new resources for My Diabetes My Way* (MDMW) to support people living with diabetes to gain insight from health and lifestyle data to improve self-management. The IDDEAS and GDS projects were proposed by the Clinical and Technical Leads from the MDMW team, both based at the University of Dundee. The projects were accepted by the Digital Health & Care Institute as part of an integrated ‘Digital Diabetes’ programme of seven projects seeking to develop digital resources to support selfmanagement. The IDDEAS project aims to enable communication and data transfer between NHS Scotland diabetes platforms (MDMW and SCI-Diabetes) and third party and commercial products. This would give patients choice in terms of the application(s) they use to meet their needs. The GDS project aims to develop automated algorithms to analyse data obtained from home blood glucose monitoring and trigger automated clinical decision alerts and feedback for healthcare professionals and patients (via SMS) based on patterns in glucose readings. The technical aspects of the IDDEAS and GDS projects are being developed within DHI Factory projects. The Experience Lab Team were tasked with working with the intended end users to understand how they would like to collect, share, see and use their health and lifestyle data within MDMW, and understand the acceptability of the proposed innovations and how they could best support self-management. Experience Lab activity for these projects began with Pre-Labs in late 2015, and developed through General Labs in 2016, culminating in a dedicated Niche Lab in early 2017.
