Mr Timothy Smith

Course Leader, MArch Architecture (RIBA 2)


I have taught at Kingston School of Art since 2008 and have led the BA (Hons) Architecture course since 2012. My teaching in the Department includes leading MArch Unit 6 with Jonathan Taylor and input into various modules across the three years of the BA (Hons) Architecture course.

I combine my academic role with one as co-partner of architecture practice Timothy Smith & Jonathan Taylor. Alongside these complimentary professional and academic roles my research interest centres around the use of the classical language in contemporary architecture. My practice has undertaken work for both commercial and private residential clients throughout the UK and current projects include buildings for the National Trust at Cliveden, a large barn complex on the South Downs and a housing development in Cambridgeshire, alongside various residential alteration projects.

The practice was recently featured in the Architecture Foundation's publication ‘New Architects 3', the definitive survey of the best practices formed in the last 10 years. Projects by the practice have been shortlisted for the Brick Awards, AJ Small Projects competition and for an RIBA Yorkshire Award. The practice has given lectures about its work in Zürich, Sweden, London and Brighton.

I have taught and acted as a guest critic at schools in London, Cambridge, Scotland and Switzerland. I am a member of the Architect's Registration Board.
