Research Summary

I am an architect and lecturer and live and work in London. In 2004 I set-up Jan Kattein Architects with a mission to advocate socially engaged working methods. I see design as an opportunity for dialogue and exchange. Pro-actively building relationships helps the practice to shape projects that make a civic contribution, supporting economic, cultural, educational and social prosperity.

The practice has unrivalled experience in realising inclusive regeneration projects with communities. We have won a range of design awards and have a reputation for the successful delivery of complex and politically sensitive projects. We have particular expertise in town center- and high street regeneration and our work supports the resilience of local businesses, strengthens civic and community assets, improves public spaces and informs local government policy.

I am a lecturer in architecture and engagement at the Bartlett, UCL and teach and publish internationally. My research investigates architectural practice to establish how different parameters and social constellations impact on design process. My book, The Architecture Chronicle, Diary of an Architectural Practice is published by Routledge.
