Biography

I am Programme Director of the MA Architectural History, and a PhD Supervisor for Architectural Design and Architectural History and Theory PhD Programmes.  My research and teaching focus on material, political, technological and ecological histories and theories of contemporary architecture and art. 

Research Summary

Since 2010 my research has focused on social, architectural and material ecologies. My 3-year AHRC collaboration with Dr Beth Lord (Philosophy, Aberdeen) about wellbeing, equality and the UK housing crisis has published its film, Equal by Design (2016). Made with our collaborators, Lone Star Productions, and including interviews with architects, journalists and academics, you can see it here:  www.equalbydesign.co.uk


Other publications include: Poetic Biopolitics: Practices of Relation in Architecture and the Arts (co-ed., 2016) and Architectural Relational Ecologies: Architecture, Nature and Subjectivity (2013); 'Humane and inhumane ratios' in The Architecture Lobby's Aysmmetric Labors (2016) and 'Spinoza's geometric and ecological ratios' in The Politics of Parametricism, eds. Shvartzberg and Poole (2015). Previous books: Space Geometry and Aesthetics: Through Kant and Towards Deleuze (2008) and Irigaray for Architects (2007). 

Forthcoming chapters include: 'Housing biopolitics and care' (2016), 'Dissimilarity: Spinoza's geometric ratios and the UK housing crisis' (2017) and 'Planetary Aesthetics' (2017). 

Teaching Summary

Completed and current PhD student projects include: seventeenth-century architectural transactions; a critical history of construction at the South Bank; Deleuze's diagrams for affective design; Kleist's theory of collapse for experimental film-making; a feminist critique of digital architecture; performative practice and animal architecture; design through Spinoza's philosophy of joy; a postmodern historiography and, ecological critiques of landfill.  


My External Examiner PhD appointments include: Edinburgh, Goldsmiths, RCA, TU Delft, RMIT, University of the Arts London and UCL, and Chelsea School of Art (BA Fine Art, 2006-10). I am currently Chair of the RIBA President's Medals, Dissertation Prize.
