Welcome to ‘bodyoftheory’, an experiment in research and communication in the field of architectural humanities. I hope it will help me to bring together a series of research and teaching interests, ideas, activities and outputs around the broad theme of ‘architecture and embodiment’. This is something I’ve been interested in for a long time and passionately believe is a massively important – yet underexplored – area of architectural theory. And while it is sometimes difficult to explain to people how this could form the basis of a ‘coherent intellectual project’, I believe the relationship between architecture and the body is actually fundamental to everything we do as designers and thinkers – and almost everything we do as human beings.
Most of the pages on the site are currently ‘under construction’ but please check back for what I hope will be regular updates.
