Department of Architecture



In 2005, Andrew graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art. Exhibitions and art have formed a large part of his professional career, designing and fabricating art works as either studio manager or project manger for artists such as Phyllida Barlow and Conrad Shawcross

Later, Andrew worked as freelance designer for the British Cycling Team. Here he was able to exploit his expertise in CAD modelling and CAM manufacture (3D printing & CNC milling), designing enclosures for prototype electronics for the Manchester Velodrome and models for wind tunnel testing, as well as contributing towards developments for the 2016 Olympic team.

Many of these technologies and experiences were transferred to the setup of digital fabrication labs at both Middlesex University - Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries and Anglia Ruskin University - Cambridge School of Art. This focused on using both analogue and digital technologies in multi-disciplinary areas and course subjects. Here, Andrew was able to use his extensive specialist knowledge of workshop processes and equipment which include casting, metal, wood, 3D scanning, 3D Printing and CAD.

The process of digital capture opens many possibilities in the way objects are made, presented and even designed. The use of 3D scanning alongside 3D printing helps to blend traditional forms of making with modern methods. Over the years Andrew has worked extensively with structured light scanning software and hardware as well as designing and installing a full body photogrammetry rig using eight DSLR cameras and an automated turntable

It is Andrew’s aim to develop the facilities in the Faculty of Architecture and History of Art, to expand the use of digital technologies alongside the traditional methods used across the department.
