Dean of the School of Architecture and the Built Environment
University of Westminster, London, UK
Jeremy Till has pursued a dual life as an architect and an educator. Till curated the British Pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale and is the only person to be twice awarded the RIBA President's Award for Research. He is the author of Architecture Depends (2009), a series of polemics and reflections that call attention to the gap between what architecture actually is - contingent on many outside forces - and what architects seem to want it to be - autonomous and pure. As Till succinctly puts it: "Architecture, in all its dependency, has to remain open."

ReMaking ReSearch: Dialogues on Research in Art and Design
This spring, the Emily Carr Provost’s Office is hosting a series of dialogues on emerging research practices at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and in the fields of art and design, more broadly.
The Emily Carr Provost’s Office is pleased to present ReMaking ReSearch, a series of dialogues on emerging research practices at Emily Carr and in the fields of art and design more broadly. This series will lead up to a major symposium on Research in Art and Design that Emily Carr will host in the fall of 2012, in partnership with the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD). It is intended as an opportunity to discuss the current state and future agenda for “research” at Emily Carr and to generate some of the key themes, questions, and issues that will animate the symposium in the fall.
