This week sees the launch of a new format for periodic episodes of the podcast: the Arch. Ed. Podcast interview. These occasional episodes are an opportunity to talk in more depth with an individual architectural teacher about their education, practice and research, and how they came to be a teacher.
Born in Manchester in 1960, Eamonn studied Architecture at the University of Cambridge and Harvard University. He held a Rome Scholarship in the Fine Arts at the British School at Rome, before teaching alternately at the Manchester School of Architecture (1986-1998 and 2006 to date) and the University of Sheffield School of Architecture (1998-2006) - where he taught me as an undergraduate student and taught me to appreciate the importance of a good cioccolata calda when appreciating the Italian townscape.
Amongst other publications, he is the author of The Politics of the Piazza: the history and meaning of the Italian square (Ashgate, 2007) and Urban Ethic: Design in the Contemporary City, (Routledge, 2006).
