Dunlop takes up new role at University of Liverpool

  • Comment

Architect Alan Dunlop has taken up a new role at the University of Liverpool as honorary chair in contemporary practice

Dunlop, who was appointed as a visiting professor at the school last year, will hold the role for the next two years.

His work will involve research, lecturing, and promoting events for the school in both Liverpool and London.

Dunlop also teaches a masters unit at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen alongside running his practice.

He said: ‘The role of the practitioner and teacher is inseparable and consider it fundamental that architects in practise retain strong links with education and forge connections with students.

Dunlop added: ‘Liverpool School of Architecture’s strength is that it is deeply rooted in the city and is a fundamental part of a buzzing, collegiate campus. The faculty thinks locally but has an international perspective, a view which I share and would build on in the future. The school’s stated aim of “’understanding global context and excellent local application’ has had a profound effect on the regeneration of the city and has helped position it as an international institution.’

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.

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.
