ARCI 591/592 - Architecture Research Thesis
Emergent Practices: Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Research interests

My current research falls under the overall umbrella of sustainability, and in particular issues relating to:


  • culture
  • construction innovation
  • disaster recovery.

In addition, the shift from industry to academia has prompted an interest in:

  • architectural pedagogy
  • social constructivist theories of teaching and learning.

Current research projects

I am currently engaged in two research projects with respect to sustainable housing. At the global level, I am seeking different examples and cultural models of shared housing and at the local level.

I am exploring housing construction innovations that have developed/could develop through use of new internet technologies, with a particular focus on SIPs construction.

My third, longer range research project surveys internationally, the teaching of architectural management and professionalism within architecture degree programmes.
