Ms Eleanor Suess

School Head of Department

About

I am the Head of the Department of Architecture and Landscape. I have previously led both the BA (Hons) Architecture and the Graduate Diploma Architecture at Kingston. I have degrees in architecture and fine arts, from Australia and the UK, and I am a qualified British architect with more than ten years' experience in architectural practice in London.

Within my research I am developing a hybrid moving image practice - the "architectural moving drawing" - exploiting contemporary digital moving image technology for new transdisciplinary methodologies between architectural representation and artists' film. This includes the production of experimental film, and my film work has been screened internationally and in the UK. A parallel, but supporting strand of research involves analysis of existing works of structural film as spatiotemporal architectural drawing. This research has been published in several book chapters and articles. I integrate aspects of my research into my teaching practice through students' production of architectural moving drawings as a method of sustained observation, recording and analysis of temporal architectural conditions, and as a method for spatiotemporal architectural proposition.
