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.

Archnet-IJAR: International Journal of Architectural Research has recently published an outline article that commemorated a decade of discourse and published research on architecture and urbanism since its inaugural issue of March 2007 and up to March 2017. The article offered a comprehensive coverage of the distinguished status of the journal being one of the top high quality journals. The purpose of the present article is provide reflections on some of what the journal has published since March 2017 and presents thoughts on latest developments including collaborations with academic and professional organizations and the move to Emerald; one of the prestigious global publishers in various areas and disciplines including relevant fields in built environment, place making, and urban planning and design. This will enable deepening and broadening existing relationships with various international research organizations and ensure that Archnet-IJAR remains a key channel for those organizations while meeting its promise for global coverage and presence.
