The author trained as an architect in New York during the 1980s. He has studied architecture formally for 18 years in the US, Netherlands, and the UK, and worked in architecture practices in the US and UK (13 yrs) including a design & research practice which he co-founded in 1993. He has also taught in architecture schools in the US (5 yrs) and UK (15 yrs) since 1993. He has carried out extensive research on the work of Piet Mondrian, theories of the everyday, structuralism and semiotics, and social housing in London with a focus on the work of Neave Brown. Along the way he has studied with Henri Ciriani, Herman Hertzberger, Robert Slutzky, Adrian Forty, Marshall Blonsky and Richard Sennett.

Having painted at an earlier time and having now left practice the urge to make things is now vented in the making of sample-based music and occasional DJ performances.

The author currently teaches architecture at university level.

  1. Hello from Architectural Record. We are interested in one of the Maison de Verre living room photos you have from 2012. I could email you the photo to see which one, if you think you have a source for it in hi-res, or know the photographer. I am the art director, and would love to hear from you. Thanks, Helene

    • Hi Helene,
      Could you let me know which image it is? I found some on the web, but others are ones I took some years ago on a visit. I was, however, only allowed to take pictures on the condition that I would not publish any of them.
      Best wishes,
