Dr Bougdah is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Architecture and Cities at the University of Westminster, London, UK. Both his research teaching interests are focused on the technological, ecological and human aspects of architectural design. His approach to “Technology” is to use it as a design generator/enabler rather than an “add-on” technical resolution to a design proposal. His research interests cover topics such as sustainable design, innovative low tech/low energy/low impact buildings, spatial experience of users and issues of culture, urbanisation and globalisation. Alongside his academic role, he runs a design/consultancy practice. He is a member of a number of learned societies/professional bodies including the Royal Society for the Arts (RSA), the Association for Computer Aided Design In Architecture (ACADIA), World Society of Sustainable Energy Technologies, (WSSET)  the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA).
