Research Interest: The 'camp' as a spatial typology through the lens of Berlin-Tempelhof refugee camp


Toby received his BA in History from the University of Bristol and is now studying for an MPHil in Architecture and Urban Studies (MAUS). His current interest lies predominantly in the manifestation of the 'camp' as a spatial typology with a focus on the refugee camp at the former Berlin-Tempelhof airport. Examples of his previous work have included research on cultural and historical topography of Berlin in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, socialist architecture of the former German Democratic Republic in Berlin, and spatial approaches to the evocation of memory in Berlin Wall memorialisation. He has also previously worked on approaches to urban modernity in Shanghai and its status as a global city.
