Professor Andrew Clancy


I was educated in UCD.  After gaining professional experience with Paul Berkemeier, Tom dePaor and Shay Cleary I established Clancy Moore Architects with Colm Moore in 2007.  

We see architecture as a continuum of built thought, and the built environment as both archive and laboratory.  We are interested in building on the latent knowledge of the sites where we work, in continuing the built conversation of others. The work of the practice has been acknowledged in domestic and international awards, publications, lectures and exhibitions.

Prior to joining Kingston I was Velux Visiting Professor to the Aarhus School of Architecture, Denmark and Senior Lecturer in Queens University, Belfast.

  • B.Arch (UCD)

Teaching and learning


My research interests align to that of my practice.  I am interested in the contribution to knowledge made by the work of practitioners, and in how research methodologies can be used to support the critical formation of architects.  

With this concern in mind and I am developing the Practice based PhD programme in Kingston - this course is aimed at practitioners who are making meaningful work, and who are interested in reflecting on, contextualising and disseminating the processes behind its production.
