Sessional Lecturer Design

David is a director of BAT Studio, an architecture practice based in north London. He has a long running association with the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL where he has studied since 2002 and is currently nearing the completion of his doctorate. He was part of the 2014 Tate IK Prize winning team, The Workers. Founded in 2012, BAT Studio combines architecture and interaction design, working in a variety of sectors ranging between buildings, retail interiors, temporary experiential installations and exhibition design. David has a wide range of both professional and academic experience as a designer and a researcher. This has led to a diverse CV with a specialism in the delivery of complex, unusual and often technology based projects. His research work investigates ideas relating to affordance, human interaction and cybernetics, through utilising machine learning techniques in the design of interactive systems and spaces. His doctorate is supported by Jason Bruges Studio and is supervised by Professor Stephen Gage and Dr Sean Hanna.
