CRCLCL UNSW Node of Excellence



A key legacy of the CRC for Low Cabon Living (CRCLCL) will be the development of a strong national capability for collaborative research in low cabron built environments. As part of the Transition Plan for the CRCLCL, it has established five Nodes of Excellence based on its five host univeristies.

The CRCLCL UNSW Node of Excellence in High Performance Architecture (HPA) will develop UNSW's strengths in high performance buildings and cities, aiming to advance research excellence in this area. The UNSW Node consists of academic staff and higher degree research students from UNSW Faculties of Built Environment, Engineering, Science and Business. The UNSW Node Government and Industry Steering Committee consists of senior management and representatives from UrbanGrowth NSW, City of Sydney, Brookfield Multiplex, AECOM, HASSELL, CSR, PIDCOCK - Arhitecture + Sustainability, etc.

The UNSW Node has identified six major research areas on which to focus: Inhabitants, Integrated Design, Materials, Emerging Technology, Urban Design, and Policy. The key themes covered within each of these research areas can be seen in the diagram below.
