Research interests

Julie’s interests in recent years have focused on the role of education and continuing professional development in the delivery of a transition towards sustainable development; the study and teaching of environmental design and sustainability as applied to the built environment. She is also interested in the social production of buildings, collaborative practices, the investigation of professional working practices in the delivery of built environment sustainability. She is currently focussing on an emerging piece of research to understand what is required in terms of leadership from built environment professions in order to enable transition towards holistic sustainable practices and a more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable future.

As a first phase of this work she is undertaking a piece of work to “Evaluate Sustainable Design in Stirling Prize Winning Buildings and their Architects” which intends to explore and evaluate aspects of holistic sustainability as manifest in the winners of the Stirling Prize over the past 21 years, considering both building and architect. As such this project will provide an excellent opportunity to develop an intimate familiarity with some of the most iconic buildings of the past two decades.
