About

I am an architect, a researcher and an academic; I am a Senior Associate Director at Flanagan Lawrence running the R&D output of the practice, I am a Senior Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, teaching on the new Designing for Performance and Interaction course and I am also in the final years of a PhD in Architectural Design at UCL, looking at Sound, space, technology, the body.

Having graduated as an architect from the Bartlett School of Architecture in 1999, I started working in restaurants and retail on projects such as Belgo Restaurants, and Habitat. When at Foster and Partners, I  worked on both Peterborough and Corby City Academies. This has led to my current position at Flanagan Lawrence.
In addition to my teaching work. I  have given lectures on the relationships between Sound art and Architecture both in the UK and abroad.

Audialsense: alongside Jason Flanagan & Ian Knowles, we have been researching the qualitative and physical properties of sound as Audialsense. Our work recreates, enhances and reveals acoustic phenomena, turning sound into physical site-specific installations dependant on the architectural qualities of a given space.

We have had work installed in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern, the London Festival of Architecture, and the Sonic Arts Networks Expo ’08 in Brighton, and 2010 saw us work with John Butcher as part of Musarc’s ‘chambers’ series of concerts.We regularly lecture on our work at universities, including the Bartlett school of Architecture as part of the international lecture series, which has hosted such luminaries as Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster.
