I DIDN’T ASK FOR THIS: PRIVATE PRACTICES IN ARCHITECTURE

Alan Higgs

My research outcomes have settled into three parts. Part One considers how personal histories of creative individuals contribute to practice, maps my body of work and recalls the origins of my sensibility. Part Two reveals how we develop and analyse design. It tracks developing mastery of a type, looks at transplanting creative practice geographically and typologically. I show how client relationships are curated and how our sharing design authorship evolves. A new research tool is explained. Part Three threads the research findings together – how the search for the ‘ideal room’ is central, what photography's role might be, how I used the PRS process, how a practice like Alan Higgs Architects might be situated. How might the future develop?
