We love the people who wear our glasses. Most of all we love their stories. Here is one of them.
Meet Andrew, a Professor of Architecture at the University of Sydney who writes books about “pointy-headed” architectural themes. Find out about his latest work, Rome, and why he digs our Sleeping Fox and Critic frames.
- Tell us about yourself and what you do for a living
I’m a professor in the School of Architecture, Design & Planning at the University of Sydney. These days I have feet planted in two cities—working in Sydney and living on the Gold Coast with my wife Ruth (we’re both originally from NZ) and 9yo daughter Amelia. At Sydney, I teach history of architecture, mostly to students who will one day become architects. My books range from pointy-headed kinds of themes (what makes architecture an art? what is discomfort for architecture? or history?) to documentation of knowledge we might otherwise overlook (on NZ modernism, or the architecture and urbanism of the Gold Coast).
