Specializing in architectural and urban design, place identity and sustainable architecture, Dr Muminovic’s research focuses on capturing and understanding the complex aspects of built environment with particular focus on transformations which maintain place identities. Taking a case study approach, coupled with lived experience from Europe to South East Asia, with particular focus on  Japan, interdisciplinary collaboration, Dr Muminovic aims to understand degrees and types of change, ways of mapping, subjective and objective, capturing slippery aspects of built environment. In 2012, she was part of the team that won the first prize at the International Design Competition for the ‘Next generation sustainable house’ in Taiki-cho, Hokkaido, Japan which was built and continues to serve as the platform for research on sustainable materials and bioclimatic design in extreme climates. Currently Dr Muminovic is framing a research on qualitative mapping of public spaces in Canberra and testing creative subjective aspects as a tool to understanding the space.
