    Biography

    Personal Statement

    I am a registered architect and studied architecture at TU Darmstadt in Germany, and the Polytechnic of Central London. Having received my PhD from the University of Liverpool, my research interests are the representation of architecture in print media; architectural competitions; and rationalism in C20 architecture. I have co-edited volumes on C20 rationalism, and on the relationship between fame and architecture. I have just, with Andrew Peckham, finished editing Modernism and the Professional Architecture Journal - Reporting, editing and reconstructing in postwar Europe (Routledge 2018). In July 2016 I was awarded an RIBA Research Trust Award for a two year project to investigate postwar architecture in children’s picture books: The representation of Modern Architecture through illustrations in postwar British Children’s Literature.
