Too Many Ideas

Early stuff on research and first ideas on contingency. Others like this more than I do. Big in China.

Scarcity and Agency

A short paper for the Journal of Architectural Education which specifically links issues of scarcity with notions of agency

Glossing over the cracks

My response as to why giving the official government website 2013 Design of the Year was not so cool.

University of Sheffield

Reforming. 

As part of the series ?The Social Production of Architecture?. Didn't go too well because I asked the question: Is Design Activism bad design and bad activism? This started a debate.

Martin Centre: University of Cambridge

Scarcity Scares. Video here.

Flexible Housing, the means to the end (with Tatjana Schneider)

Second of two, with some hints as to how to achieve flexible housing, much more developed in the book.

Occupational Hazards: Architectural Review

A short think piece on the 2011 Occupation movement and its relevance to architecture.

Here, There and North of Nowhere

Short piece examining local identity, starting with a pop at Frampton’s Critical Regionalism.

NAi/Berlage Institute: Delft

Architecture Depends/Spatial Ethics. Video of the lecture is here.

University of Westminster

Spatial Agency and the Ethics of Architecture

University of Dundee

Spatial Ethics

Alternate Currents: Introduction (with Tatjana Schneider)

Lightish introduction to a whole issue of field (with articles worth reading); the start of the Spatial Agency Project.

Iceland Academy of Arts and Architecture: Reykjavik

Spatial Ethics. A lecture that tried to marry work on spatial agency with Arna Mathiesen's brilliant analysis of scarcity in Reykjavik. 

The Negotiation of Hope

An extended argument of what participation might be and mean in architecture. Probably my most ?scholarly? piece.

The Urban Miniature

Funny how ideas formed so long ago still come up. But rather gauche nonetheless.

People’s Research Council

A project with Helen Storey of the London College of Fashion and Tony Ryan of the University of Sheffield, arising out of their Free Radicals project. At heart a really good idea of diversifying the way that research is chosen, procured and delivered, allowing others beyond the academic circle to become involved in the processes and ideas of research. A report generously funded by the Wellcome Foundation sets out the stall. Now looking for ways of effecting it. 

Three Myths and One Model

Originally commissioned by the RIBA, a piece on what might or might not constitute architectural research. Big in Spain.

Design: Duarte Carrilho da Graça & Philipp Sokolov
