Architecture in Space, Time

Early piece, written when I had just got Lefebvre. Introduces themes that I play on for years to come.

Occupational Hazards: Architectural Review

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

The Everyday and Architecture: 1997: Academy

Edited with Sarah Wigglesworth. Now all this stuff appears, well, everyday but back then it was quite original. Buying it is a problem because the publishers discontinued it, but there are some sellers out there in the US. Essays and work by, among others, Sam Mockbee (of Rural Studio, his only published writing, of which we are proud to have persuaded him to do), Greil Marcus, Niall McLaughlin and Michael Marriott.

University of Dundee

Glossing over the cracks

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

Three Myths and One Model

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

Architecture and the Politics of Scarcity

Umeå School of Architecture, as part of their 'Making Architecture Politically" lecture series. A new lecture. Quite bossy but clear about the issues. Video is here. Starts about 50mins in with a very generous introduction from Roemer Van Toorn (whose writing is always worthwhile).

Three Myths and One Model

Tent City University: OccuppyLSX: St Pauls

Ten Theses on Scarcity. A lecture given in a tent on the steps of St Pauls during the Occupy London Stock Exchange period. Vocal audience who gave not a jot about my professorial authority. Rightly. Podcast, with the atmosphere of the occupation, is here.

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. 

Bread and Circuses

A short piece that I wrote in 2010 for the Architects Journal about end-of-year architecture shows. Some rather paranoid architectural tutors at Westminster (where I was then Dean) saw this as an attack on them personally, and so excommunicated me forthwith. In fact it was nothing to do with them but rather a concern about the general direction of architectural education as manifested through the exhibition.

The Future is Hairy

The best essay on the building and meaning of our house, with stories.

Modernity and Order, Architecture and the Welfare State

On Park Hill as an example of welfare architecture and its current demise. My first foray into the work of Zygmunt Bauman.

Architecture of the Impure Community

My first foray into the intersection of politics and architecture. Spiky.

A Review of O'Donnell and Tuomey Architects' Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork.

Posted in honour of their 2014 RIBA Gold Medal Award. First published in Architectural Review in 2005 (and needs the drawings/pictures) A bit of a rave.
