  7. Sustainable Fashion and Textiles

    5 Minutes with Kate Fletcher

    "I'm not sure I can ever remember not being engaged with fashion nor sustainability. Growing up in a family of community activists in inner city Liverpool in the bleak years of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, it was impossible to avoid direct experience of the necessity of change. As was (for me at any rate), the practice of making clothes."

  8. Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    Routledge Chats with Kjell Anderson about Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    "While a handful of architecture firms have measured the performance of their designs and occupied buildings in the past, this is a rapidly growing trend.  Firms are simulating during design, asking for earlier engagement of energy analysts, and going back to check on completed buildings.  Performance, in this case, can refer to overall energy use, thermal comfort, daylight levels, occupant satisfaction, usage patterns, etc.  Their simulation results from early and late design are being compared against post-occupancy results, leading to a more informed design process."

  9. Routledge Research in Architecture series
