From Grey to Blue and Green: Devising an inclusive infrastructure for Scotland

Extremes of climate change are increasingly frequent globally, and the UK and Scotland are not exempt. Urban adaptation will depend on addressing settlement vulnerability to protect the fabric and population of a city. Read more

Developing a methodology to measure and optimise the impacts of climate change on urban building environment (|OP2261)

Following the Government heating and energy target guidelines to improved building performance it is important to consider building design and human activities when examining the impact of changing microclimate due to climate change. Read more

Design for meaning

Problem Statement. With the increasing availability of affordable products, systems and services the attention of architects and designers is turning more-and-more to the properties of “experience” and “meaning”. Read more

Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge for Inclusive Spaces

The Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge aims to bring together hybrid processes informed by design, movement practices and emerging technologies to examine how we can better map thinking in ways of movement in architectural design. Read more

Urban, Socio-Spatial, and Health Empirically Validated Implications in a Post-Pandemic Context

The highly contagious coronavirus and the rapid spread of COVID-19 disease have generated a global public health crisis, which is being addressed at various local and global scales through social distancing measures and guidelines. Read more

An inclusive and sustainable blue space infrastructure for people with disabilities in Scotland post-Covid-19 pandemic

Evidence has consistently shown that using blue and green spaces has a positive impact on physical and mental health. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the ability to access and use blue and green spaces was positively related to people’s mental wellbeing. Read more

Enhancing Urban Flood Resilience with Innovative Digital Design Technologies (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/MCE/FENG)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on urban road network (URN). Read more

Climate-resilient architectural and building design: learning from the past

Our climate is changing, and extreme events are becoming more frequent. For example, the UK Climate Projections found that in the UK we will see hotter drier summers and wetter windier winters, and heatwave days in the UK become more frequent and last longer. Read more

Deep Learning for Architectural Design Exploration

"Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are an emerging research area in deep learning that have demonstrated impressive abilities to synthesize designs, however their application in architecture has been limited, especially for 3D applications (Newton, 2019). Read more
