John Bell leads our Master of Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2) course at UCA Canterbury. After beginning fine art, an increasing interest in performance and installation led to a switch to architecture - though arts practice remains a central part of John’s work.
Prior to joining UCA John held teaching posts at The University of Westminster, Kingston University and The University of East London.
After a period at the Arts Council of England heading the Architecture Unit, John joined the Architectural Association in 2000 as a Unit Master and was Academic Advisor to the Diploma School from 2003 to 2006.
John is an exhibiting artist in the Amsterdam Light Festival 2016/2017. His work Enthalpy refers to the measure of energy in a system. The work reveals us as radiating bodies, part of a global thermodynamic system.
