Other additional collaborators on the project are: Dr Sophia Psarra, Reader of Architecture and Spatial Design at Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, 
Professor Steven Bishop from the UCL Department of Mathematics and 
Dr Philippe Duffour, Lecturer in the UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Department.
