I fulfill two roles within the Department of Architecture and Landscape:
The first is to lead Architecture Design Studio 2.3, teaching second year students how to create architecture. I teach alongside Jim Reed and, together, we strive to deliver a strong tectonic and political emphasis around the themes we bring to the studio.
My second role is to teach Architectural Theory to BA students; I run a lecture course in semester one of the second year, and coordinate the BA dissertation. In addition, I lecture on the History of Architecture.
My research interests centre around philosophy and architecture - in particular 20th century French philosophy and the work of Gilles Deleuze.
Other research interests include Roman Baroque architecture and art, the work of Francesco di Giorgio, and the ontology of architecture.
My research interests centre around the link between 20th century French philosophy and architecture. I am particularly interested in the work of Gilles Deleuze, whose philosophy has been grossly misinterpreted in architectural theory over the last couple of decades. My aim is to try to correct this misinterpretation.
Other research interests include the 15th century Italian architect and theorist Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Roman Baroque architecture, phenomenology and architecture (particularly the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer), and trans-architecture (transexuality and LGBTQ in architecture).
