Eva Lloyd is a lecturer in an 'Education-Focused' role within UNSW Built Environment, Interior Architecture program. She comes from a practice background, working as an architect and urban designer, in Cambodia and across South East Asia on community-based development projects. Projects involved collaboration with local and international NGO’s, grassroots organisations and private sector in work spanning from upgrades for tenure security with urban poor communities, to affordable housing, design advocacy, participative workshops and design education. Eva brings this experience into her educational role, now convening Design Studio courses that place emphasis on social agency and human-centred design within local and international contexts. She developed and leads an annual interdisciplinary urban design workshop connecting UNSW students with design students from the Royal University of Fine Arts, in Cambodia, to analyse and compare the use of public street space in Sydney and Phnom Penh. From this she has worked with a team of Interior Architecture staff members and students to launch a Professional Placement program and travel award, hosted by a local Cambodian arts NGO, and run as a collaborative experience for a student from UNSW in Sydney and from RUFA in Phnom Penh.

2018 BE Teaching and Learning Grant: Hackathons as a pedagogical model for interdisciplinary design education

Eva's research interests draw from her experience in socially focused design practice and education across South-East Asia.

1 Multi-stakeholder design frameworks for inclusive city-making.

2 The expression of the 'urban-interior' in global contexts and it's contribution to street vitality.

3 The role of design practitioners in accommodating or blocking the ability for end users to appropriate space.

4 The use of 'direct' behavioural observation methods to analyse spatial environments.

5 The use of on-field analogue drawing as a research methodology for design education.

6 The value of 'real-world' global experiences in design education, both in terms of context and cross-cultural student collaboration.

7 The value of interdisciplinary learning in socially-focused design education.
