Timber and Harbours: Insights into Sustainability in Design and Construction
Thursday, 6 June, 2019
"In Ireland, this work has potential to impact conservation authorities, local councils and the architectural and historical records. And what we learn from the process can more generally inform researchers how best to curate and share such data so it has an impact now and into the future."
In part 11 of our 2019 researcher case studies we look at Dr. Elizabeth Shotton of the UCD School of Architecture, Planning & Environmental Policy.
Associate Professor Elizabeth Shotton at UCD School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy is looking forward in time at how we can make more environmentally sustainable use of timber in the built environment, and she is looking back at the construction of small harbours in Ireland to both preserve and learn from their history.
