Research summary

My research is interdisciplinary and focuses on the relationship between architecture, memory and fire. My PhD thesis entitled Architecture and Fire: An Archival Approach to Architectural Conservation is a radical reconceptualisation of architectural conservation, which is approached through psychoanalysis and an invented methodology that is ‘fire’. Based on my PhD theory, I have  developed an art practice that explores conservation through its counter-phenomenon of destruction. My monograph entitled Architecture and Fire: A Psychoanalytic Approach to Conservation was published by UCL Press in June 2019.
