12 September 2018

Joyce Chan (HOK) and Mark Lumley (Architype.) join the Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc Advisory Group.


UCL IEDE are delighted to welcome Joyce Chan from HOK and Mark Lumley to the Advisory Group: for the Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc.

Joyce Chan is Head of Sustainable Design at HOK. She has more than twelve years’ experience of working on a variety of UK and international projects, ranging from feasibility studies, through all stages of design, to site works. She has applied innovative sustainable design initiatives and delivered several ambitious projects, including Heathrow Airport (London), YuSha Square Commercial Development (China) and Masdar Zero Carbon City (Abu Dhabi). She was awarded Best Design Proposal at the Passive Low Energy and Architecture (PLEA) International Conference in 2007 and also took part into the publication and research of Learning Environment with the AA school in 2006. She is teaching and speaking at various events about how architects can make positive impacts on making us to live happier and healthier.

Mark Lumley is Associate Director at Architype. Mark’s interest lies in the social impact of architecture, and drawing on his experience in the art sector, working creatively with clients and user groups to develop the brief and deliver a successful building. On joining Architype Mark designed and delivered a £15 million co-joined school, called The Willows. A complex program involving a number of clients, he developed methods of working with the different groups to deliver this prize-winning building. From this point Mark’s role expanded to oversee the portfolio of education projects, which included the delivery of the first Passivhaus schools in the UK (Oak Meadow and Bushbury Schools in Wolverhampton), which led to the commission of Wilkinson Primary in Wolverhampton, completed in January 2014, a further progression on the Passivhaus route.

The MSc Advisory Group acts as a sounding board for the programme to ensure it is academically sound but also relevant to the real world (employers, for example). Advisory Group members also help with identifying suitable case studies and project ideas for coursework/dissertations, as well as deliver guest speakers when possible.
