Academic in Architecture : Architect in Academia
Ruth is known for her contribution to architectural education and research, across the UK, Ireland and internationally, through her teaching, writing and projects.
This website presents her writings related to architectural education, engaged spatial practices, street-level pedagogies and innovative material practice. It also includes examples and links to the innovative Design Studios she has led and to the Award-winning Material Practices she has been involved in since 2005.
Ruth’s work, whilst seemingly diverse, is defined by a drive towards social and ecological justice, and a willingness to critically engage with the default systems that sometimes envelop us.
Ruth is Professor of Biological Architecture at Newcastle University.
