About Me

I am currently involved in the Queen's University Belfast research project "Planning for spatial reconciliation", which is ultimately targeted towards building institutional capacity among key stakeholders in planning and regeneration to:

(a) empower them to address more innovatively and effectively the issues of division and reconciliation relating to the sectarian geographies of the spatially segregated society that endures in Belfast;

and (b) appreciate the potential of new approaches such as spatial and community planning for proactive and civically-inclusive forms of peace-building.

I am currently research stairs as architectural spaces rather than architectural elements. My research hopes to explore the pyschological and phenomenological character of stairs. How this intensely physical space is perceived and how this perception is translated into symbolism and metaphor in art, literature and cinema.

My Masters thesis entitled  ' The Geography of Home' - Houses of Enchantment

completed in 2008 at Oxford Brookes School of Architecture -

the potential for buildings to bare poetic qualities in symbiosis with the urban fabric or the natural setting. The relationship between built form and its physical, cultural and social context, and the overlap between architecture and landscape, and what these disciplines hold in common.

Lecturer in Architectural History

research interests

My research interests lie in the field of art theory and the history of modern architecture. I focus on relationships between architecture, the humanities, the social sciences as well as natural science. By using a variety of methodologies I illuminate how utopian ideas developed and took shape in building programs.

About Me

I am a registered Architect and a Planning and Development Valuer. I have variously worked ;- as an architectural assistant in commercial architectural practices, as studio master for 7 years in UCD School of Architecture, as a developer of inner city mixed-use properties, as an Irish furniture design gallery owner, as a technical expert for local community development, as a principle of an ecological architectural practice.  I have also served voluntarily on public and voluntary sector boards such as Comhar, IEN, RIAI Sustainability Task Force, BREG Advisory Board, Environmental Pillar, and currently, on the Tipperary Energy Agency.

I have been an advocate of sustainability since 1980 firstly as a community architect for social change and since mid 90s mainly for environmental objectives. I co-founded Feasta, the Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability in 1998. I am currently director of EOS Future Design a small multi disciplinary practice that develops real and virtual systems for sustainable living in both the built and natural environments.

research interests

• Better ways to plan, develop and finance settlements;- similar the two stage process that the improving Irish landlords used so well in the 18/19th Centuries.

 

Specifically, I am exploring a commons approach where the land is held in trust separately from buildings; also new relationships between architects, clients, users and builders that eschews private competition and public patronage. I set up and participate in the Community Land Trust Initiative to promote CLTs and, recently the Design Team Cooperative to facilitate development of land held in trust by various bodies.

 

• Sustainability in the built and natural environment. In particular distributed energy and waste systems using anaerobic digestion and pyrolysis for energy and soil fertility.

 

I am just finishing an EPA funded 'Agrichar' project that carries through 'PBx2' Report SEAI funded learnings re inter laia use of biochar to reduce emisisons from Irish agriculture. I am Chair of the newly formed Biochar Cooperative.

 

• New banking and credit systems for the above. Working with the Irish Public Banking Forum previously and now irish Rural Link to establish local owned banks along the German Sparkassen model in Ireland.
