Keynote: Economy Conference: Cardiff

Scarce Times. 

An early rehearsal of some of scarcity work.

Thatcher's Funeral

Not my musing, but that of my brother Nick Till. Nails the issues around Margaret Thatcher's funeral rather beautifully in two paragraphs

Architecture is too important to be left to men alone

A further explanation of my 30% pledge, which seems to have raised debate (see comments) elsewhere on the very wonderful Parlour website. 

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.

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.

Three Politics

This is the transcribed text of my speech closing the What's the Point of Art School conference at Central Saint Martins in May 2013. It reads rather crudely, but the points are made

The Broken Middle, the space of the London riots

Thoughts on the London riots. I think good.

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. 

Faculty of Architecture, ULB, Brussels

The Expanding Field: Architecture Beyond the Object.

Designs of the Year 2014

Article for The Conversation critiquing the reductive way that things are chosen for the Designs of the Year exhibition.

The Selfless Plan

This is a rare one where I write specifically about buildings, or in this case the subtlety of the plans of Proctor Matthews Architects. Online here, pdf here.

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.

Four facts about higher education policy

More or less what it says on the tin - facts that were correct in early 2012.

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.

Design: Duarte Carrilho da Graça & Philipp Sokolov
