Research Profile

Sharpe a senior academic at the Glasgow School of Art, holding several academic posts, including Professor of Environmental Architecture, Head of Architectural Technology, Senior Researcher at the MSA, Reader in Environmental Architecture and Director of the Mackintosh Environmental Architecture Research Unit (MEARU). The latter is a position he took over in 2008. Since that time, MEARU has undergone a transformation in activity, profile and capacity and is an acknowledged centre of excellence in its field and is one of the most successful research centres at the GSA. MEARU now has an internationally recognised profile with a very unique identity, bridging the gap between science-based research, architectural design, and building users. It has established expertise that goes beyond energymore...
