Ran Boydell, Architecture and Sustainable Development Consultant at Ecohus, Visiting Lecturer at Heriot Watt University.
“Tracking progress to net zero of the built environment professions over my career of 30+ years, from the Rio Earth Summit 1992 and the Newcastle Declaration 1997, through to the Paris Agreement 2015 and Glasgow COP26 in 2022.”
Ran Boydell has studied and practised architecture in the UK and his native Australia for over three decades. His work reflects his passion for sustainability, heritage, and rural architecture, and his career has encompassed roles as designer, developer, regulator and educator. This view from “all sides of the table” has given Ran a holistic perspective of the built environment and the building procurement process. At a time of major global challenges, Ran’s professional focus has turned to architecture that delivers on zero-carbon targets, to broader sustainability issues such as the Circular Economy and Natural or Social Capital, and which implements the UN Sustainable Development Goals “on the ground”. Ran teaches university courses on sustainable development, researches and writes about current sustainability issues, was a founder of the #ArchitectsDeclare initiative in Australia, and, through his Ecohus brand, is a pioneer of sustainable homes for the residential mass market.
