Personal profile


Solomon ADEWUMI is a PhD candidate in University of Dundee, UK. His background is in Architecture where he had both Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) and Master of Technology (M.Tech) degrees in the Federal University of Technology Akure, Nigeria. His research interest in the neighbourhood scale of spatial development stems back to his undergraduate degree dissertation where he examined behavioural response of man to space with a special consideration on the ambient and spatial environments. This interdisciplinary research investigated how the built environment influences the behaviour of man. Although his Masters’ thesis dissertation focused on sustainable design at the building scale, it enabled him to have a better understanding of sustainability discourse which he is presently exploring in the context of his PhD research at the neighbourhood scale. His other research interests include place making, urban design, collaborative planning, and sustainability assessment.
