TUTOR IN ARCHITECTURE - CONTINUITY IN ARCHITECTURE ATELIER

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 role is to work within the Continuity in Architecture (CIA) atelier which is founded on a conviction that the architect needs to become a specialist in understanding cities, their evolution, and the way they embody, express and facilitate social life. This means they need to know how to interpret the persistent features of culture expressed through existing architecture and built form. We encourage our students to explore the theories of contextualism, critical regionalism and new urbanism to synthesise an appropriate design response, often in charged heritage settings. Our aim is to foster an appreciation of the work of a settlement's forbears, and give due consideration and dignity to their efforts in a changing future. This role is principally based in the M.Arch design studio of the Atelier.

Innovations in our teaching are informed by our research work. We have identified three research fields across the teaching team, forming teaching ‘strands': city centre regeneration, small settlements, and adaptive reuse/heritage. 

The CIA Atelier offers a mixed diet of inputs, formats and content, some combined across the vertical atelier structure:

  • Project partnership - teaching through collaboration with real-world partners. This contemporary relevance increases engagement and aligns with our aims to work with real built form. Aim to generate briefs and to assist with their regeneration ambitions.
  • Peer-to-peer - teaching in student-led seminars on building case studies and theoretical texts. Knowledge of foundational theories of contextualism, craft and construction.
  • Studio teaching - lectures given by atelier staff, teaching students about their research interests. 4-6 project tutorials reviewing design development.
  • Industry partnerships - teaching layout and detailing of buildings by architects experienced in current practice. Engagement with factory manufacturers to explore craft approaches.

Informal discussions can be held with John Lee via john.lee@mmu.ac.uk

The successful candidate will be someone who demonstrates an understanding and enthusiasm for the Continuity ethos and approach and has a desire to challenge and extend the research of the Atelier through the teaching programme.
