Occupational Hazards: Architectural Review

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

Glossing over the cracks

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

Angels with Dirty Faces

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

The Design of Scarcity

Lecture at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, that runs through the structure and argument of our book of the same title. The link is to the video, with my lecture on first. 

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.

Scar(c)e Times

For Occupied Times, the journal of the occupation movement. On austerity contra scarcity

Please Do Not Touch

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

Three Myths and One Model

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

University of Westminster

Spatial Agency and the Ethics of Architecture

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.

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

Urban Weaving

A critique of masterplanning. On to something here, but yet to be developed.

Scarcity and Creativity in the Built Environment

A large European funded research project for which I am the project leader. Looking at the way the production of the built environment is affected under conditions of scarcity. In partnership with TU Vienna and Oslo School of Architecture, and working with Deljana Iossifova and Jon Goodbun at the University of Westminster and the SEED Foundation. A range of books, exhibitions and events will come out of it; visit the website for early outcomes.
