Mr Tom Coward

Lecturer

About

I teach on the postgraduate Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2) MArch course. I have co-led Unit 2 design studio with Simon Henley since 2015/16.

This year's studio research entitled '1977 and all that... a suburban archive of domestic treasures' critically considers the practice of architecture in 1977 through published texts and exemplary architecture. We will use this research as a springboard into a personal design thesis shaped within the contemporary architectural debate surrounding public access into and the exhibition of publicly held collections.

Last year, we considered '1956 and all that' with a similar format of examining the output of team X, and specifically Giancarlo de Carlo, in relation to 'settling a remarkable landscape' and living a 'many sided life' within Dartington Hall, Devon.

Our first year, 1966, celebrated the 50th anniversary of publications: The New Brutalism, Architecture of the City, and Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture.
