[Dense, subtropical, sustainable] the liveable multi-storey apartment building

Kennedy, Rosemary J. (2015) [Dense, subtropical, sustainable] the liveable multi-storey apartment building. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This study examined the potential for apartment living to become more socially and environmentally acceptable in Australian society generally, and in subtropical cities particularly. Resolution of incongruities between residents' preferred attributes and other stakeholders' main interests has important implications for reshaping lifestyle expectations and design practice as society moves toward a post-carbon future.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
