Research interests centre around European metropolitan urbanism and its relationship to public, civic and institutional buildings with a specific focus on Florence, Italy. I am an Editor at ArchDaily where I try to stay one step ahead of world architecture news. I've also written on Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum and interviewed at the Venice Biennale, occasionally discuss interesting spaces, and review exhibitions and publications from time to time.
My second love is art history. Publishing Michelangelo: the Man, his Works, his Legacy in 2010 alongside a national lecture tour on Michelangelo in the Vatican, Monet: Colour in Impressionism for iPad was published in 2011. After 28,000 international downloads in six months, a special edition was released in over 50 countries. The Haaplin Press was subsequently incorporated in 2013.
I co-founded Mies. UK, a collection of interviews with architects, academics and students. We're now filming in five languages across two continents working together as Mies. TV. See what we got up to at the 2014 Venice Biennale.
Studio Dipylon - a research collective in its infancy - is a space we use to explore and examine the impact of civic architecture in the contemporary city, from Manchester to Tokyo.
