Sabina Fazlic is a Distance Learning Tutor at the Graduate School of the Environment, Centre for Alternative Technology, in Machynlleth, Wales, UK. She is involved in the MSc Architecture: Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies by Distance Learning (DL) course, which focuses on the environmental impact of buildings as well as the more general relationship between technology, people and the environment.
Recently, Sabina has submitted a PhD thesis entitled “Design strategies for Environmentally Sustainable Residential Towers in the Cool Temperate Climate of Europe and North America” at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University. Sponsored in part by the Overseas Research Students Awards, the research focused on creating a design framework for residential tall buildings which could facilitate their creation in architectural practice.
Sabina has been a visiting tutor in tall building design studio modules at the Department of the Built Environment, University of Nottingham, for a number of years. She has applied her research experience in tall buildings and sustainability in both practice and academia, and has participated in and published papers at a number of conferences in related topics. She is a graduate from the School of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago, and currently resides in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
Her published books and research papers in the field of Tall Buildings include:
