learning architecture


a PhD in live projects and architectural education


One week ago today, on 10 September 2012, I traveled to Belfast to sit my PhD viva. I was examined by Professor Helena Webster of Oxford Brookes University and Dr Ken Sterrett of Queen’s University. I am delighted to report that the viva was both a successful and enjoyable experience: I have passed with a few minor revisions, which I will submit to Queen’s within the next eight weeks. The hard copy of the thesis will be available in QUB’s library and an electronic version will be available to download from the British Library in due course.

I am now living and working across the water in my home county of Norfolk, where I have been appointed Lecturer in Architecture at Norwich University College of the Arts (NUCA). We are busy working to prepare and deliver the first year of a new three year BA (Honours) degree in architecture, starting later this month.

Although my activity on this blog will now slow down, you can continue to follow me on Twitter (@jbenedictbrown) and on our (soon to be launched) NUCA blog and twitter account.
