Role: Lecturer in Architectural Studies
Biography: Ewan Harrison is a lecturer in Architectural Studies at the University of Manchester. His research focusses on architectural practice and capitalism in post-war Britain and the post-war British African empire, through analyses of both the design of buildings for business and the business of building and design. His work seeks to broaden our understanding of the production of architecture in the post-war period, by examining the interactions between commercial architects, contractors, and their clients, figures that are generally side-lined in canonical accounts of post-war modernism.
