Architectural practitioner and academic Alan Dunlop has been appointed as visiting professor at Liverpool University School of Architecture
Dunlop, who runs a practice in Glasgow, already holds a similar position at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University. His new role at Liverpool will involve helping final year architecture students through their thesis design.
Dunlop said: ‘The faculty are exceptional architects, teachers and communicators and the students talented and motivated.
‘Liverpool is also a great city, much like Glasgow, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.’
Dunlop takes up the role after completing a stint as external examiner at XJTLU University, Liverpool University’s joint venture with Xi’an Jiaotong University in Suzhou, China.
In that role he helped guide the new school of architecture toward RIBA validation – granted in October.
In his new position, he will be supported by architect Ben Devereau, a recent award-winning graduate of the Liverpool school.
Dunlop was educated in London and the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow.
He was formerly a partner at gm+ad architects, which he formed with Gordon Murray in 1996, and which designed a number of buildings in Scotland’s second city.
The Liverpool University School of Architecture was established in 1894 and became the first university in the UK to award a RIBA accredited degree in architecture.
