1 Formal CPD Point
This CPD course (1 formal point) showcases current research from the University of
Newcastle and Deakin University will discuss a variety of issues related to innovation in design.
This presentation is equivalent to 1 hour/point of formal CPD and will deliver outcomes related to the following Competency/s from the National Standard of Competency for Architects:
1.2 Establishment, analysis and evaluation of client project requirements and objectives.
1.4 Identification of factors that may impact on client project requirements and objectives.
3.1 Design response integrates the objectives of brief, user intent and built purpose
4.7 Coordination and integration of appropriate environmental systems, including for thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics.
Project Initiation and Conceptual Design:
PC 19 Be able to identify, analyse and evaluate client project requirements and objectives using qualitative and quantitative methods and, where required by the terms of engagement, to assist cost estimators in determining project feasibility/viability.
PC 24 Be able to prepare and analyse project development options in response to a project brief – its objectives, budget, user intent and built purpose, risk and timeframes, including environmental sustainability considerations.
PC 33 Be able to investigate, coordinate and integrate sustainable environmental systems – including water, thermal, lighting and acoustics – in response to consultants’ advice.
At the end of this session participants should be able to:
• Establish the importance of innovation in building design
• Identify issues in the transition of and translation from research to innovation
• Investigate the role of architects in the era of big data and social media
• Explore how the idea of "future proofing" in the context of hospital architecture
• Describe the complex ecosystem of design and innovation
DR REBECCA MCLAUGHLAN
University of Newcastle
Dr Rebecca McLaughlan is an Australian Research Council DECRA Research Fellow based at the University of Newcastle. Her work looks at the relationship between the built environment and user wellbeing within healthcare facilities design, across palliative and end-of-life care, mental health, oncology and paediatric healthcare. It is motived by the suspicion that during times of intense vulnerability architecture has the most profound effect.
