TUTOR IN ARCHITECTURE – FLUX ATELIER (1 ROLE)
Joining the Manchester School of Architecture as a Tutor in Architecture you will be responsible for teaching within one of our vertical Ateliers which consist of students from the final year of the degree programme as well as the two years of the M.Arch programme. You will work within an Atelier staff team structure which combines core staff along with a number of part-time tutors, all with specialist expertise based on the research led agenda of the Atelier.
This specific tutor role is to work within the Flux atelier which is an Urbanism atelier that looks at how architecture can establish a state of change. Each year the teaching programme undertakes a live collaboration for a city-scale urban regeneration programme that is underway in Manchester. Flux students investigate, both through their own direct action on site and speculative designs, how as they could each develop an individual and collaborative practice that could transform the ways in which practitioners, both creative and built environment professionals, design for urban regeneration and/or create new opportunities for communities to be engaged in the remaking of their city, with a focus on co-authoring the design brief rather than responding to it.
The focus of the teaching in Flux is for our students to develop their own ways of practicing architecture that work with developers earlier in the process before the key decisions are made and engage, rather than consult communities in setting the brief for transformation to shape a different trajectory and approach to making tomorrows cities that is more people and environment centred.
The atelier pedagogy takes a pragmatic approach in its teaching, looking for students to develop real world solutions. They are called upon to spend much of their studio project engaging with the site, its people, practitioners and clients, in order to develop practical, affordable design proposals adoptable by communities, clients, cities.
We are looking for a Tutor that operates and functions at a high level of creative design, technical, materiality, arts and humanities skills within their practice. In addition, candidates should have a track record of personal or commercial practice that operates both with, and at the edge of (or outside of) the modus operandi of the built environment profession.

Informal discussions can be held with Atelier leader Dan Dubowitz via D.Dubowitz@mmu.ac.uk.
