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.

After completing the Maker’s Academy software development course in 2016, I entered 2017 as a fresh faced self-titled "Clinician Software Developer", thinking I would change the system by building the technology I felt was missing. I started with some low hanging fruit to test out my skills - digitising the “heart attack” treatment pathway in the Emergency Department. I had visions of people using my app to decide how to manage patients, replacing the tatty sheet of paper currently pasted to the Emergency Department wall. The app looked great, and the specialists I built it with loved it. But the first time I tried to use it on a hospital computer, it took me to the wrong decision each time I used it. It turned out that the Microsoft Internet browser worked slightly differently to the Google Chrome browser that I had built it with.
