Biography

Patricia Tzortzopoulos Fazenda has graduated in Architecture and Urbanism in Brazil and has industrial experience in collaborative design integration and management. Patricia is Professor of Integrated Design, Associate Dean for Research at the School of Art Design and Architecture, and Director of the Innovative Design Lab.  and Head of Department of Architecture and 3D Design from September 2014. Patricia joined the University of Huddersfiled on the 8th of May 2014 as Head of Department for Architecture and 3D Design (up to the 7th of January 2018). Her role combines research, administration and teaching activities. She has taught on the areas of Design Management, Value Generation and Building Information Modelling in architectural design, developed a number of research projects, supervised research students and published widely.

Patricia’s career encompasses design, architecture, new product development and the built environment, with a focus on multidisciplinarity, integration between design and construction through collaborative working, and value generation in design. She initially specialised in design management through a masters at the Postgraduate Programme of Civil Engineering -UFRGS, Brazil. As a design manager, she was responsible for managing client requirements and implementing process innovation to improve effectiveness and efficiency of design and its interfaces with contruction. This practical experience underpins her research and teaching interests.

Patricia’s PhD was awarded in 2004 by the University of Salford, UK, and focused on the design and implementation of product development process models in construction companies. Before completing her PhD, Patricia joined the School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford as a research assistant on the EPSRC funded Salford Centre for Research and Innovation in the Built and Human Environment (SCRI). She became an Academic Fellow, developing research on the design of healthcare built environments, and developed the MSc Built Environment for Healthcare. Patricia was appointed as research coordinator at HaCIRIC (Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre, EPSRC IMRC). She has developed and lead the MSc BIM and Integrated Design, launched in 2011. Following, she became Director of the Design and Property Management Directorate at the School of the Built Environment.
