Design Research Unit publishes issue 7 of Intelligent Architecture publication

19.01.18

Scott Brownrigg’s Design Research Unit (DRU) has published issue 7 of Intelligent Architecture (iA).

Issue 7 focuses on the theme of ‘Architecture and Learning’. The edition explores not only the role of architecture on the design of educational buildings, but also the relationship between design, learning and the wider communities using Scott Brownrigg examples. The publication reviews some of the current issues and trends affecting the design of future learning environments including the use and role of emerging technologies and artificial intelligence and the challenges associated with delivering learning environments on premium high density urban sites.  

The iA publication aims to cast a spotlight on those fields of research and design activities that can make a difference to the practice, the built environment and to a client’s projects, as well as on the individuals and groups that carried out that research.
