Survey of Non-Technical Research in Architecture
Martin Edge was PI for a project commissioned by the Scottish Executive.
The objective was to determine the extent and focus of non-technical research
on built environment issues carried out in Scotland
since 1997 and to identify and assess similar relevant work carried out
elsewhere in the UK
and EU during this period. The principal aim was to establish the nature of
existing research available to inform the Scottish Executive’s future policy
priorities for architecture. It was driven by a desire to support policy – in
particular the policies on architecture and sustainability – with information
derived from the appropriate level and type of research. The main aim was to
explore what research information was available in order to help set agendas
for both research and the implementation of architecture policy. The main
product has been an on-line database focusing in particular on Scottish
research but including data on the rest of the UK and the EU.
The Summary Report is available in pdf form at the Scottish
Executive website here...
the full report on the mapping survey is available here. The full report includes
the full database of available information of all relevant research carried out
between 1997 and 2003
