Mackintosh Environmental Architecture Research Unit (MEARU)


The Mackintosh Environmental Architecture Research Unit (MEARU) is built on an established track record in two main environmental domains within the Mackintosh School of Architecture: passive solar energy design and participatory design. MEARU now undertakes strategic and applied research into a wide range of aspects of sustainable environmental design, responding to a growing commitment to user-centred, low energy, eco-sensitive architecture in the context of increasing global concerns.

MEARU has undertaken a wide range of research, published extensively and is represented on several national and international committees. This activity contributes greatly to the learning and teaching culture of The Glasgow School of Art and has also established the Centre as a significant global research player in scientific and architectural circles.

Staff in MEARU have completed a number of research-based consultancy contracts with corporate clients such as Glasgow City Council and Communities Scotland, as well as private architectural practitioners.
