I recently wrote an article for Pi Media on the first full year of the UCL Academy in Swiss Cottage. The school is fully funded and operated by University College London as an attempt to bring a more university-style education to the secondary experience. In the article I tour the building and facilities, plus interview the Prinicipal of the Academy, Geraldine Davies. You can view the article here. It’s also included in Issue 701 of Pi Magazine which you can pick up for free across Bloomsbury or view online here.

“We don’t learn languages very well in this country. So our principle has been to embed one modern and very important language into the life of the school”

Summer of Sorts

IUTLINH is having quite the summer. In between trips to Berlin and Rome, I’ve been spending my time working as a communications assistant at the Bartlett School of Architecture and freelancing at The Guardian.

My time at the Bartlett revolved around The Bartlett Summer Show 2013, one of the largest architecture degree shows in the UK. Whilst there, I commissioned two videos focused on the show’s opening night and preparations for the event, respectively.

I’ll be taking a short break from this blog over the summer as I go into writing overload. I hope you’ll enjoy the sun if your somewhere where that’s a possibility, and visit back next time. Make sure you don’t miss an article by following this blog via WordPress or email. Links are on your screen.

The aforementioned videos are below:
