Professor of Architecture and the Moving Image
Fellow of Darwin College

I study the history of the relationship between Cinema and Architecture in order to inform contemporary digital moving practice with a view to propose new modes of communication in architectural and urban issues.
I currently supervise five PhD students working in the field of digitality, design and communications, architecture and the moving image. I teach an undergraduate lecture course in 1st, 2nd and 3rd year on The Culture of Images. I also give a series of seminars for the MAUS and MAUD MPhil courses on Urban Cinematics.
I am one of the core teachers in the University interdisciplinary MPhil in Screen Media and Cultures [based in MML].
I am the Director of the Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies
My latest film involvement was about reconstructing a lost church in Florence, part of the Visions of Paradise exhibition at the National Gallery [showing until end of March 2016]: http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/visions-of-paradise
