“Approaching Research Practice in Architecture”

  • by

Brief thoughts after participating in a doctoral workshop organized and hosted by the BauHOW5 This week I had the opportunity to participate in a doctoral workshop on architectural research held online and hosted by members of the BauHOW5 consortium – TU Munich (DE), TU Delft (NE), UCL – The Bartlett (UK), Chalmers University (SE), and ETH Zurich (CH). The workshop, “Approaching Research Practice in Architecture,” focused on questions of knowledge in architectural research, and included a series of addresses and short five-minute presentations by current doctoral candidates from institutions within and beyond the consortium. I, myself, presented my research-in-progress as… Read More »“Approaching Research Practice in Architecture”

New Poetry Out Now in SPAM003

  • by

Returning to blogging and a new poem published New poetry out now! While I never intended to keep a strict schedule on this blog, I have meant to get back to it after a short, deeply needed holiday that I took after an intense and productive period last spring and early summer. I have quite a few updates to share, including a presentation I made in this year’s IConA International Conference on Architecture, a forthcoming academic article on poetic practices in ‘reading’ urban space, and other presentations/publications, not to mention some literary news. To start, though, I am happy to… Read More »New Poetry Out Now in SPAM003

What I learned about Creative Practices at the 2021 University of Glasgow creative writing symposium

Last week I had the pleasure of giving a short talk on poetics and spatial design at the Symposium on Creative Practice and Writing at the University of Glasgow. My own presentation focused on preliminary doctoral research on poetic practices that I have been undertaking with students at the Strasbourg National School of Architecture, and I was grateful to have a positive reaction from audience members. I’ll speak more about that work another time, but today I wanted to share one major takeaway I received from the symposium, which maybe shouldn’t be earth-shattering, but which I find very encouraging. Creative… Read More »What I learned about Creative Practices at the 2021 University of Glasgow creative writing symposium

Short talk at the Symposium on Writing and Creative Practice at the University of Glasgow

On Thursday, April 22nd, I’ll be giving a short online talk on Spatial Poetics where I will introduce my thesis project and share a selection of initial results from experimental pedagogy on poetic practices as part of the Symposium on Writing and Creative Practice at the University of Glasgow. The 5-hour event is being organized on the occasion of the Creative Writing department at the University of Glasgow applying to become the Centre for Writing and Creative Practice, and will both celebrate what has come before as well anticipate the opportunities that will come with the change. I am personally… Read More »Short talk at the Symposium on Writing and Creative Practice at the University of Glasgow

HOMECOMING

  • by

Back to blogging, but this time poetics and space Just a few months ago I decided to formally enroll as a doctoral candidate at the University of Glasgow, to pursue a practice-based, interdisciplinary research project that has been central to my interests for the past several years: poetic practices in spatial design. I have been a poet among architects and urban designers for several years now, and my work has increasingly led me to pursue the areas in which creative writing and design meet. It feels natural to now begin to formalize my earlier research, writing, teaching, and collaborations within… Read More »HOMECOMING
