Biography

Dr Phillip B. Roös is the Director of the Live+Smart Research Laboratory, and Associate Head of School - Industry Engagement at the School of Architecture and Built Environment, Deakin University. His teaching and supervision focus on Architecture, Environmental Design and Planning, Ecological Urbanism, and Biophilic Design.

His work spans accross architecture, urban design and planning, landscape architecture, environmental design, teaching and research, as well as writings and art. He is known internationally as a leader in Environmental Design and has been working as a design professional and architect for 30 years on an extensive range of large-scale projects in Europe, Africa and Australasia.

His work is influenced by whole systems thinking and his application of environmental design is closely related to the ordering of the large-scale aspects of the environment by means of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, urban design and ecological planning.

His teaching and research interests are centred on the human–nature relationship and the identification of optimised design processes based on a regenerative-adaptive pattern language theory. This approach incorporates the principles of biophilia and regenerative design as well as an adaptive pattern language that re-establishes our wholeness with nature, and considers the vulnerabilities of a changing landscape.
