The King is Dead!Long Live the Queen!

Short and a bit inconsequential riposte to Markus Miessen’s Nightmare of Participation.

Glossing over the cracks

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

The Ethics of Technology

My first published work. Oh, what a clever young chappy I was. Sanctimonious posturing.

Jakarta Architecture Triennale 2012

Workshop and lecture. The workshop was an incredible experience of working on issues of scarcity with students of Yandi Andri Yatmo and Paramita Atmodiwirjo in a Jakarta kampung. Reported on an Indonesian urban blog for Indonesian speakers.

Lost Judgment

My longest piece on architectural education. Finalist in EAAE competition. Maybe should have won, but the judges, Perez-Gomez and Palaasma, rose to my bait of inauthentic phenomenology and sulked.

The sucked bottom

This was a comment on the UK Government's White Paper on Higher Education from 2011. Corrects a few myths.

Three Myths and One Model

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

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.

Please Do Not Touch

Musings on Biennales and architectural exhibitions. Good opening! Light follow through.

Echo City

Texts for the catalogue to the British Pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale. On ideas of scale and stories in cities.

The Educator as Ironist

Another piece on architectural education. Rather showy-offy, but was an finalist in the EAAE competition for writings in architectural education that year.

Echo City: 2006: British Council/Cornerhouse

The catalogue of the British Pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale, with essays by me (the ones on scale are here), and an introduction - a love letter to Sheffield -  by Go! Sheffield. Designed by the very brilliant Ian Anderson of The Designers Republic, so worth your £5 for that alone. The British Council website has a scammy scan of the catalogue.

The Knowledges Of Architecture

A worthy piece that begins to unpick notions of autonomy in architecture. Good opening, slightly ploddy continuation.

New Collectives

An interview with the portuguese journal arqa. In portuguese, so translation below. On scarcity, politics and the need for alternatives. Done the day of Thatcher's funeral, so pretty gloomy.
