Kelly Greenop, School of Architecture, Fort Lytton

Kelly Greenop is a senior lecturer at the School of Architecture and is affiliated with both the Architecture Criticism Theory History (ATCH) where she is Deputy Director, and Aboriginal Environments Research Centres (AERC). Her research has focused on work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in urban Brisbane, Australia, using ethnographic techniques to document the place experiences and attachment, and the importance of architecture, place, family and country for urban Indigenous people. She also researches intercultural place heritage in the Brisbane region, and the urban cultural history of Brisbane’s suburbs.

Kelly’s latest research is in Digital Cultural Heritage, utilising 3D laser scanning of heritage environments and buildings in South East Queensland. She has been working with researchers from ATCH, School of Architecture, CSIRO and site managers at Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to scan and archive fragile, remote and at risk sites, and research the use of scanning in architectural heritage practice. She has scanned and coordinated the entry of three heritage sites onto the CyArk global cultural heritage database.

Peter McLennan (BSc, BA, MSc) is a Senior Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London. His primary area of research is on the performance of buildings from three perspectives: management, design and occupancy.

His projects are best described as applications research in collaboration with commercial organisations. The outputs provide the frameworks to assess, measure, and predict occupancy requirements, particularly the spatial aspects of occupancy, for building users and facility managers.
