SPACE Studies announces David Mountain as the Keynote speaker of SPACE International Conference 2019 on Architectural History and Theory which will be actualised on 3-5 May 2019 in London.
David Mountain is a PhD Candidate and Teaching Assistant in Architecture at the University of Manchester, supervised by Dr Lukasz Stanek and Prof Kevin Ward, and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and Presidents’ Doctoral Scholarship. He previously completed an MSc in Urban Studies at University College London, where he was supervised by Dr Pushpa Arabindoo, and his undergraduate degree was in History of Art at the department of Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths, University of London.
For his Master’s dissertation, David studied the rise of the adaptive reuse of infrastructure in the London Docklands. Its theoretical slant was extended for publication in an edited volume that arose from participating in a panel on urban theory at the RGS-IBG annual conference in 2016. This book, “Emerging Urban Spaces: A Planetary Perspective”, was recently published in Springer’s Urban Book Series.
