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.

Welcome to the DHIs new blog series on the 'ins and outs' of citizen-centred data sharing! This topic is very apt at the moment with the new General Data Protection Regulations coming into effect in May as well as countries such as Norway, currently in the process of implementing a national identifier to link all of a person’s data. This blog series will give you an insight into the changing nature of data sharing as we advocate for person-centred data sharing methods. I will also use this opportunity to exemplify various European regions which have succeeded in this domain and can share data seamlessly across many different boundaries using national identifiers. Finally, i will finish this series with a Scottish perspective to understand how our country can take key learnings from other European regions.
