9.30am MATHEW AITCHISON (guest lecture, room F2.09)
In this lecture Prof. Mathew Aitchison will talk about his work in the Innovation in Applied Design Lab at the University of Sydney, and specifically the Lab’s work on collaborative research projects with industry. He will also discuss the particular view of design research (applied) and what prospects this might hold for the study and discipline of Architecture.

Dr Mathew Aitchison is Professor of Architecture at the University of Sydney, where he directs the Innovation in Applied Design Lab. Mathew is a researcher, teacher and designer, and currently directs three major research projects exploring industrialised building in prefabricated and modular housing. Mathew has published widely, including Visual Planning and the Picturesque (Getty, 2010), the first publication of Nikolaus Pevsner’s unfinished treatise on urban design and architecture. More recently, his research focuses on the architecture of industry and prefabricated housing. Publications here include, The Architecture of Industry: Changing Paradigms in Industrial Building and Planning, (Ashgate, 2014), of which Mathew is editor and contributing author, and a forthcoming volume, Prefab Houses and the Future of Building: Product to Process, (Lund Humphries, 2017).
