Translating the concept of sustainability into architectural design practices: the case of London City Hall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This completed PhD research project is a Science and Technology Studies (STS) inspired exploration of the design practices that brought London’s City Hall (1997-2002) into being. Minister Raynsford responsible for finding a suitable building for the Greater London Authority (GLA) ambitiously declared it to be an exemplar project of “environmentally progressive objectives, the principles of sustainability”. Since there is much contestation about how to enact such an ambitious agenda, I as a form of theory in practice retrospectively follow architects, engineers, clients and others through the complexities of the design process to investigate what they do with the concept of sustainability in the daily context of their design studios, offices and on site.
