Overview

Chris Landorf is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture and a registered architect. She holds postgraduate qualifications in business administration, facility management and a PhD on the sustainable management of industrial heritage sites. Recent academic contributions have focused on sustainability and the built environment, specifically in relation to complex industrial and historic city environments. She is currently Director of Teaching and Learning in the School of Architecture and has recently contributed to the 2015-16 Accreditation of Architectural Education in Australia Review Panel. Her collaborative research has been supported in the area of heritage with a UWA-UQ Bilateral Collaborative Grant, and in the area of teaching and learning with grants from the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology, The University of Queensland and the Office for Learning and Teaching. Chris has been a Chapter President and Council Member of the Australian Institute of Architects, member of the Architects Board of South Australia, Chair of the Association of Architecture Schools of Australasia, and a member of numerous National Visiting (Accreditation) Panels. She was project architect for the Broken Hill Line of Lode Miner’s Memorial and Visitors Centre, which received the 2001 Australian Institute of Architects Walter Burley Griffin Award for Urban Design. She currently represents the School of Architecture on the AIA Queensland Chapter Practice Committee.

Research Interests

  • Heritage management and practice
    My current research project investigates the characteristics, motivations and experiences of volunteers at a complex industrial World Heritage Site in the UK. The research also investigates the effectiveness of current volunteer management strategies and the impact of volunteering on the broader community. This research aims to support the development of enhanced heritage management strategies for volunteer recruitment and retention, and community engagement and benefit.
  • Architectural management and practice
    My current research in this area addresses the imbalance between theory and practice in the construction industry through the development of an interactive digital environment with associated learning and teaching activities. The digital environment is based on time-lapse 3-dimensional images captured over the course of a major construction project, The University of Queensland’s Advanced Engineering Building. This research aims to support the development of a realistic inter-disciplinary experience for students in construction related professional disciplines.

Research Impacts

A significant proportion of Chris's recent publications appear in high impact international journals and conferences. The International Journal of Heritage Studies (2015 impact factor of 1.08) is a leading international journal for contemporary inter-disciplinary research into the politics, cultures, management and economics of heritage. The Journal of Sustainable Tourism (2015 impact factor of 1.959) is a leading journal advancing the critical understanding of the relathsionships between tourism and sustainable development. Local Environment (2015 impact factor of 1.45) and Planning Practice & Research (2015 impact factor of 2.02) are quality international journals publishing in the area of sustainable development policy and politics. Since joining the University of Queensland in mid-2009, her publications have been cited 110 times. She has also been invited to review various journal articles and conference papers.

Togetehr with colleague Dr Kelly Greenop, Chris will be co-convening an important international conference in Brisbane in April 2017 titled digital cultural heritage : FUTURE VISIONS. The conference will provide a platform for critical debate between those developing and applying innovative digital technology, and those seeking to integrated best practice into the preservation, presentation and sustainable management of cultural heritage.
