I Studied architecture at the AA, graduating in 1973, and worked in practice (at first with James Gowan and then with Haxworth Jones and then solo) and teaching (eight years at the AA, then three at Kingston, short terms at Westminster and at Brisbane Australia, then seven years as a visiting professor at the University of Texas at Austin and most recently a year as artist in residence at the Academie Van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam).
I think of writing as my main activity now. I have published three books with the MIT Press. What is Architecture? An essay on landscapes, buildings and machines, (1994); The Cultivated Wilderness, about landscapes, (1997); and Artificial Love, a story of machines and architecture, (2003).
I am currently working on a essay on criticism called How To Like Everything.
