Spatial Practices Programme; Lecturer, MA Architecture: Cities and Innovation

I am part of the studio and seminar teaching team on the MA Architecture: Cities and Innovation. I am a founding partner of muf architecture/art. The work of the practise negotiates between the built and social fabric, between public and private. muf authored Villa Frankenstein, the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 2010 which took Ruskin and Venice itself as a means to examine how detail can inform strategy. Awards for muf projects include the 2008 European Prize for Public Space (a first for the UK) for a new 'town square' for Barking, East London. Co-author of, “This is What We Do: a muf manual” research continues to be intwined into every project. 

Previously a visiting professor at Yale, my studio explored an alternative legacy for Londons Olympic site, building on my role as an LDA design advisor.
