Even though designers are specifically trained to create and build new products, their contribution to innovation in the food industry is relatively small. The industry seems unfamiliar with the ways in which designers operate and may be unaware of the added value they may provide. Therefore, this article identifies the potential roles that...

The built environment contributes 40% to total global greenhouse gas emissions and 87% of the buildings we will have in 2050 are already built. It follows, if predicted climate changes are correct, we need to adapt existing stock sustainably. In city centres outside Australia there is a history of office to residential conversions. These types...

About 40-50% of global raw materials are currently used in the building industry in the assembly/construction phase and in the use phase of the building and are responsible for 40-45% of total worldwide anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions (Huovila [5]). These problems have led to the development of legislative policies, regulations and...

Problems that present project managers have to deal with are more and more concerning complexity, i.e. unexpected, uncertain, unstable or unique situations. This seems also the case with sustainable building projects. It is therefore necessary that project managers are trained to deal with these problems, especially by learning from their...
