Geoff Shearcroft: 'I'm fortunate to have seen my buildings misused'

Geoff Shearcroft: 'I'm fortunate to have seen my buildings misused' | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
The AOC director on his influences and, cryptically, his love of Back to the Future

 

What got you started?
Trying to work out why the suburban estate I grew up on wasn’t as good as Elliott’s in ET.

Who was your most inspiring tutor?
Neil Jackson and Jon Buck introduced me to all the best bits, while Clive Sall provided a consistently interesting provocation.

Which architect have you learnt the most from?
The last time I saw Dominic Cullinan he reminded me how well he’d taught me. I increasingly realise how much I owe Steve Tompkins and Graham Haworth for an education in practice. In terms of built work, late-1950s James Stirling, 1960s Charles Moore, 1970s Louis Kahn and early-1980s Frank Gehry.

Which living architect do you most admire?
Those whose buildings make me go weak at the knees when I visit. In the last couple of years this has been Jan De Vylder, Lacaton & Vassal and Rudy Ricciotti.

What “great” architecture leaves you cold?
Built manifestos in ice.

What is your best project?
Always the one we’ve just completed. Currently this is the Pop Art Design exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery.

What project do you most regret losing?
Our second-place scheme for an all-star hotel and public park on Birnbeck Island with Urban Splash would have been a fantastic adventure.

What part of the design process do you most enjoy?
Watching the inhabitation and evolution of the building. Having built a number of schools, I have been fortunate to see a particularly high level of creative misuse of the buildings I have been involved with.

Which house would you most like to live in?
Peter Aldington’s Turn End, the perfect English arcadian idyll.

What is your favourite city?
London. It has everything I hate and love about cities in close proximity.

You can work in any city at any point in history — where and when would you choose?
City of Industry, California, October 26 1985.

What is the most important relationship of your working life?
My working life is unimaginable without everyone at AOC but particularly my co-founders Daisy Froud, Vincent Lacovara and, for over half my life now, Tom Coward.

What would be your dream commission?
Any project in which my relationship with both client and contractor is rooted in a shared desire for quality but makes the most of our differences. Our Walk in the Olympic Park project for London 2012 was one of a number that have achieved this balance.

What is your favourite architectural book?
Complexity and Contradiction in Architectural Form by Robert Venturi. The introduction is still my favourite piece of architectural writing with its combination of radical ideas, personal voice and humble confidence.

What is your favourite novel?
Jonathan Coe’s What a Carve Up! – formally inventive, deeply political and very funny.

What are you listening to?
Yesterday I had a dreamy wake-up to The Sugarcubes’ Birthday, laughed at Ylvis’s What Does the Fox Say? and nearly cried at an acoustic version of Disclosure’s Latch.

What have you sacrificed for your career?
The flugelhorn.

What does your family think of your work?
My mum takes great delight in phoning me when she’s visiting London with friends to receive answers to immediate questions, eg. “What’s that new tower by the Gherkin?”

Is it getting easier?
Not easier, just deliciously different.

RIBA: Practice in the UK - CASS

RIBA: Practice in the UK - CASS | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

This is a course for non UK qualified architects. It will provide students with an introduction to the architectural, professional, legal and financial basis of the UK Construction Industry.

 

Course aims and benefits

This course is specifically designed for EU qualified Architects (covered by the Professional Qualifications Directive) who are working or preparing to work in the UK.

It will give an introduction to all aspects of working as an Architect in the UK, from: appointments and setting fees; working with sub consultants and the wider design team; understanding the constraints around the construction industry including planning; appointing contractors and the different contractual options; and managing Health & Safety and risk. It will also contain sessions on Professionalism, the roles of the ARB and RIBA and an introduction to British Law.

The course covers much the same ground as RIBA Part 3 course, but will not lead to accreditation as an Architect, it is designed for people who have already qualified in the European Economic Area and who have a qualification covered by the Professional Qualifications Directive (2005/36/EC). For more details on qualification equivalence, contact the ARB. For the accredited RIBA 3, Examination in Professional Practice, see here.

This course is different from the Part 3 course in that:
• You do not need to have done RIBA Part II to do the course
• You do not need to understand the UK Construction Industry to do the course
• It is not focussed on the assessment

To view the RIBA Visiting Board Report from January 2012 click here

The course will be delivered in 10 sessions. Each session will last 2 ½ hours and include:

An introductory lecture of about an hour, and hour and a quarter.A lecture, case study or interview with or by a professional related to the field. These guest speakers will include lawyers, journalists, architects, clients and members or the professional boards.The opportunity to ask questions or explore opinionsEach session will be supplemented by a handout, which will include a summary of the main points and resources for further study.

The ten sessions will cover: Introduction & Sources of Information; Professionalism; The Role of the Architect; Controls over the Built Environment; the UK Legal Framework; Contract & Procurement (2 sessions); HR issues; Appointments & Charging Clients & Risk, Insurance and Dispute Resolution.

Assessment

On completion of the course, the students will receive an RIBA Continuing Professional Development Certificate of Attendance. In between the last two sessions of the course, a short case study and a series of questions will be issued. This will not be formally marked, but constructive feedback can be given.

The RIBA Future Trends Workload Index reaches it's highest level since the survey began in 2009

The RIBA Future Trends Workload Index reaches it's highest level since the survey began in 2009 | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Anecdotal commentary received suggests that many practices are continuing to see an overall pick-up in the level of project enquiries and commissions for feasibility studies. However, our respondents continue to report that projects often remain very stop-start, as funding remains difficult to secure, and there is little evidence of any easing in fee competition.
