learning architecture

Icon

a PhD in live projects and architectural education

Thesis status check: chunky with revisions

Brief emergence from the thesis lair for an update. Very productive supervisions in Belfast a week and a half ago (during our third annual Street Society vertical live project). I’ve taken the liberty of pushing my deadline back a few weeks to Friday 13 April.

You know, for luck, and stuff.

If you’re in Belfast that evening, give me a buzz and I’ll give you directions to a hostelry where you can watch me sob into a Guinness.

“A live architectural question is like a live moral question; it has more than one answer, all of them wrong…”
