Associate Professor Paul Osmond

Director, Sustainable Built Environment program
Sustainable Built Environment, Smart Cities

BSc (Monash)

Grad. Dip. Environmental Management (Charles Sturt)

Master of Design (RMIT)

PhD (UNSW)

My research and teaching interests fall into three key areas: urban form, urban metabolism, and architectural and urban ambience. Form examines the shape of the city and its precincts. Metabolism takes a systems and life-cycle approach to buildings and how they operate. Ambience examines the physical and psychological qualities of the built environment and the lived experience of inhabitants.

From urban design processes, to energy efficiency, to the creation of delightful places that enhance our health and wellbeing, these areas of study are important because we need to know how a city works in order to draw conclusions and make improvements.

My work dovetails perfectly with the key aim of the Faculty, which is to plan, design and manage sustainable and equitable cities for the 21st century, but also feeds into the wider strategic aims of the university through its provision of insights into solving the grand global challenges of urbanisation and climate change.

Bio: 

Paul Osmond has been engaged with sustainable development since the 1980s, both in practice and more recently, through teaching and research. He joined the Built Environment Faculty in 2010, from his previous position as manager of the former UNSW Environment Unit where he was accountable for development and implementation of the University’s Environmental Management Plan. Prior to this role, Paul worked in local government, where he was responsible for the delivery of a variety of pioneering environmental management, landscape and urban design programs and projects. His previous professional background includes experience in forestry, freelance technical journalism and the metal industry. Paul has qualifications in applied science, environmental management and landscape design. His PhD research focused on methods for evaluation and design of sustainable urban form. He is a Certified Environmental Practitioner, Practitioner member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, Registered Environmental Auditor, Green Star Accredited Professional and a member of the International Association for Urban Climate Member and International Ecological Engineering Society.

Research Activities: 

My research interests cover a range of topics within the broad ambit of built environment sustainability, including urban morphology, urban metabolism and ecosystem services, urban climatology and architectural/urban ambience (experienced physical and psychological qualities of the built environment). I see the future direction of my research as consolidating and developing the above, with a key objective being to support the emergence and growth of recognised “nodes of excellence” around these (and related) topics. My most recent research project experience has been as chief investigator and lead author for the Guide to Urban Cooling Strategies, launched in August 2017 by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living; and as member of the National Green Infrastructure Network team which delivered the Urban Ecology Desktop Review and Blueprint for Living Cities: Policy to Practice reports for the NSW Environmental Trust in April 2017.

Teaching & Supervision: 

Coming to academia from three decades of practice in the public, private and NGO sectors, my teaching rationale embraces the perspective that knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Within this experiential framework learning is best served by an approach which is both context-based, responsive to social context and setting; and problem-based, characterised by the use of "real world" problems as the framework for students to learn critical thinking and problem-solving skills. I focus on achieving continual improvement in teaching effectiveness through attention to student feedback and maintaining links with built environment practice. I currently teach across the postgraduate Sustainable Development Program, where I am keen to bring insights from research and practice to courses embracing sustainability and habitability, managing the sustainable built environment and environmental auditing. I am also co-convener of an innovative Integrated Design Studio which combines the skills of postgraduate Architects and Engineers, and I convene the Sustainable Development Program's "capstone" Graduate Research Project. A major teaching focus for 2018 is revision of our course material for delivery of the Master of Sustainable Built Environment program in Singapore, for the Singapore Building and Construction Authority.
