Mr Timothy Smith


I have taught at Kingston School of Art since 2008 and have led the MArch Architecture (RIBA 2) course since 2017. Previously, I was leader of the BA (Hons) Architecture course from 2012. My teaching in the Department includes leading MArch Unit 6 with Jonathan Taylor.

I combine my academic role with that of co-partner of architecture practice at Timothy Smith & Jonathan Taylor Architects. Alongside these complementary professional and academic roles, my research interest centres around the use of classical language in contemporary architecture.

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 various awards and were displayed in the exhibition "What Is Ornament?" at the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2019. The practice has given lectures concerning its work and teaching in the UK, Europe and North America.

I sit on the education committee of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects and the committee for the ICAA Education Forum 2020 to be held at the University of Notre Dame, USA.
