Housing fit for purpose: Performance, feedback and learning. Prof Fionn Stevenson (Sustainable Design, Sheffield University)

Fionn is passionately interested in an underpinning ecological approach to sustainable design in order to address climate change. Fionn studied architecture at the Universities of Cambridge and Sheffield before working in practice as a community architect in Lancashire and Scotland. Her interest lies in the deep tacit knowledge that people have in relation to buildings and the means of accessing and utilising this in design through occupancy feedback in order to make buildings work better. A key aspect of this is reducing unnecessary resource consumption in buildings at every level and finding new ways to do this.
