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.

On the 15th of March we hosted a Connectathon. This event looked at how people experience technology in health and care - from the home to the health centre to the hospital. We imagined what kind of new experiences and services could be provided to help people, using new technologies. For example, what could happen if people have easy access to and ownership over their health & care data through a “personal data store” or “personal health record”? What if you could easily use health devices at home and you could allow healthcare professionals to view that information for your benefit? What would this look like, and in what situations would it be helpful?
