The Knowledges Of Architecture

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

Too Many Ideas

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

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.

Architecture in Space, Time

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

Thick Time

Sticky opening (I was reading Kant at the time) but better later on issues of time in architecture.

Strong Margins

Short piece on Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio, trying to find the line between adulation and critique.

A Happy Age

Rather a miserabilist piece, but gets in that fantastic Seneca quote: ?Those were happy times before the days of architects.?

Please Do Not Touch

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

The Intimate Inner

My contribution to Sarah Wigglesworth’s great book on our house, Stock Orchard Street. Outlines the tensions of being an architect-client.

From Objects of Austerity to Processes of Scarcity

An essay based on a presentation to the Society of Architectural Historians, tracing various historical episodes of austerity.

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
