While studying for his architecture degree at the Arts University Bournemouth, Joe created work to explore the subject’s potential for ‘otherness’ through its intersection with music. The invention of a musical instrument called The Haptic Music Machine started from by dismantling a piano and embodies this research. In the two years following graduation he has continued to expand on previous work through collaborations, including time alongside sound artist Jez Riley French and artist/curator Jennie Savage. In practice at Architecture PLB he has been working on the design and delivery of new facilities for the Cass at London Met University. While at LSA he hopes to test similar engagements in an urban context and aims to broaden the perception of an architects’ field of work. Joe will be employed at SODA for his practice placement.
