Three Myths and One Model

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

The Ethics of Technology

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

The Urban Miniature

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

Angels with Dirty Faces

The article when I found my voice. Stories, the everyday and a sprinkling of theory.

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.

The Knowledges Of Architecture

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

The Vanity of Form

On the dangers and vanities of form. Written when I was wading through my philosophy degree and it shows.

Too Many Ideas

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

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.

Flexible Housing, Opportunities and Limits (with Tatjana Schneider)

First of two articles setting out the preliminary argument for the book, Flexible Housing. Apparently one of arq’s top downloads.

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.

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.

Alternate Currents

Another introduction, this time for ARQ, to projects arising out of the Spatial Agency project.

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.

Here, There and North of Nowhere

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

Constructed Scarcity

Very early thoughts from our Scarcity and Creativity project. Now looks rather crude.

The Broken Middle, the space of the London riots

Thoughts on the London riots. I think good.

Scarcity contra Austerity

Unpicking the differences between scarcity and austerity, the implications for the built environment. Good twitter feedback. Translated into French courtesy of the great journal Criticat. Pdf of translation here.

Reality in the Balance

A long piece on Trump-Brexit-Architecture. I was nervous doing it because I thought everything had been said, but thought there was an urgency, so any contribution felt worthwhile

Scarcity and Agency

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

Beyond Discourse: Notes on Spatial Agency (with Tatjana Schneider)

First thoughts on spatial agency, better developed in the book.

Architecture and Contingency

A bit of a cheat, because it is really the second chapter of Architecture Depends
