Overview

Associate Professor Chris Landorf is a registered architect in the School of Architecture at the University of Queensland (UQ). She holds postgraduate qualifications in business administration, facility management and a PhD on the sustainable management of historic environments. She is recognised for her work on the application of digital technology to historic cultural landscapes. In April 2017, she co-convened an international conference in Brisbane titled digital cultural heritage: FUTURE VISIONS. In September 2017, she co-convened a sister symposium in London in association with University College London’s Bartlett Real Estate Institute. The conferences attracted scholars and practitioners interested in digital technologies and their application in everyday heritage practice, including tourism engagement and conservation management. Chris is additionally recognised for her work on the management of complex historic cultural landscapes, including urban and industrial landscapes. In January 2018, she presented a 3-hour workshop on the management of mining heritage as part of the Taiwan Bureau of Cultural Heritage Industrial Culture Assets Talent Training and Exchange Program.

Chris is also recognised for her work on the development of digital resources and integrated inquiry-based learning methods for the teaching of architectural technology and construction. This has been supported by two recent grants, a $220,000 OLT Innovation and Development Grant awarded for 2014-16 and titled ‘Developing a 4D inter-disciplinary learning environment for construction industry professionals’, and a $200,000 UQ Technology Enhanced Learning Signature Project awarded for 2015-16 and titled ‘Developing an integrated 5-dimensional technology learning experience for architecture students’. As a former Director of Teaching and Learning within UQ’s School of Architecture and a former Head of the School of Architecture and Design at the University of South Australia, Chris has had significant experience with procedure development, strategic planning and implementation. She has led curriculum reviews in the Bachelor of Architectural Design and Master of Architecture programs, including the development of new course aims, content and teaching, assessment and evaluation methods to meet professional competency standards and University graduate attributes. She was a member of the Australian and New Zealand Architecture Program Accreditation Procedure Development Group in 2016-17 and has sat on numerous national architecture program accreditation panels.

Research Interests

  • Heritage management and practice
    Current research in this area is focussed on the application of new data collection and digital visualisation techniques to the capture and sharing of historic places, objects and practices. This research aims to contribute to debates about societal relationships with the historical past, contemporary present and possible futures, as well as drive questions about authenticity and integrity, and the democratisation and management of heritage.
  • Architectural management and practice
    Current research in this area is focussed on the development of a interactive digital 4-dimensional construction learning environment and associated learning and teaching activities. The environment is based on time-lapse 3-dimensional images captured over the course of several major construction projects. This research aims to support the development of a realistic on-site experience for students in construction related professional disciplines.

Research Impacts

A significant proportion of Chris's recent publications appear in quality international journals and conference proceedings. The International Journal of Heritage Studies (2016 SJR impact factor of 0.481) is a leading international journal for contemporary inter-disciplinary research into the politics, culture, management and economics of heritage. The Journal of Sustainable Tourism (2016 SJR impact factor of 1.687) is a leading journal advancing the critical understanding of the relationships between tourism and sustainable development. Local Environment (2016 SJR impact factor of 0.792) and Planning Practice and Research (2016 SJR impact factor of 0.881) are quality international journals publishing in the area of sustainable development policy and politics. Her publications have been cited 137 times since 2013. She has also been invited to review various journal articles and conference papers.

Together with colleague Dr Kelly Greenop, Chris has most recently co-convened an international conference in Brisbane in April 2017 and a sister symposium in London in November 2017 titled digital cultural heritage : FUTURE VISIONS. The conference and symposium provided 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.
