JOB OPPORTUNITY:  DESIGN DIRECTION MODULE LEADER

APPLY BY 13 JULY 2022

The London School of Architecture is looking for a Design Direction Module Leader to join the team.

JOB OVERVIEW

We are looking for a motivated, imaginative and collaborative architect to take our Design Direction module to the next level, enhancing the School’s reputation as providing innovative learning experiences for our students that are both relevant and impactful. 

 

Design Direction is the final module of Year One in our two-year Masters (MArch) programme in Designing Architecture and is central to the LSA’s practice-oriented and future-facing architectural education model.

 

Design Direction is an eleven-week module that runs from February to June each academic year. The module follows Design Cities and Design Think Tanks and is directed towards supporting students to establish a brief and their position in relation to city-making for their Design Thesis in Year Two. The Design Direction module leader will work with a team of design tutors to support students in assembling a design portfolio to include spatial design proposals explored through analytical drawing, modelling, design research and testing and with respect to sustainable environmental, political, social, economic, cultural, and technological factors. The module leader will work with the Head of School and Academic Director to deliver a series of design exercises, including site specific analysis, the honing of a design research question, identifying a relevant programme and community of practice, and establishing an appropriate individual design methodology.

We welcome applications from:

  • experienced architectural practitioners who have outstanding skills in communicating their design knowledge.
  • practitioners who have a broad range of design methodologies to draw on to meet a range of student thesis questions
  • practitioners with a high level of climate literacy and knowledge of disciplines and agendas across the built environment 
  • practitioners who are well equipped to help post-graduate students develop their design skills
  • practitioners who have an exceptional aptitude for fostering design talent in students

Applicants should:

  • subscribe to the mission for the school and be able to make a critical contribution to it: www.the-lsa.org/about/purpose/
  • experienced tutors to have at least four years’ teaching experience (i.e. not just as a visiting critic)
  • early career practitioners to have at least four years in practice.
  • be available to teach in our studio in East London
  • preferably be practising in London, in your own practice or as an employee

DELIVERABLES

  • please submit a portfolio, CV and covering letter by Wednesday 13 July 2022 to people@the-lsa.org 
  • please make clear in your covering letter your level of practice and teaching experience
  • interviews will take place week commencing 18 July 2022
  • positions commence in September

If you have any questions please email the LSA’s Academic Director, Samantha Hardingham samantha@the-lsa.org
