The High Performance Architecture (HPA) research cluster aligns with schools’ strategic research direction on HPA and recent UNSW investment in environmentally-driven architectural science and technology, which aims to lift productivity and excellence in HPA areas.

The High Performance Architecture research is concerned not only with building design and urban planning, but also tackles challenges relating to health, comfort and wellbeing of people in buildings and cities.

Our vision is:

  • to promote innovative design concepts and emerging technologies to create sustainable buildings and cities
  • to foster frontier research collaboration with national and international institutes, Australian governments and industries
  • to facilitate a future international research institute in HPA areas.
