Professor Michael Stacey has stepped down from his role as chair of architecture at Nottingham University
Stacey, who has also run his own private practice since 1986, decided to leave the department earlier this year, Architects’ Journal understands.
A University of Nottingham spokesperson said: ‘Professor Michael Stacey recently took the decision to leave the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, to pursue outside interests, focusing on practice and research into materials, architecture and affordable low-carbon housing.
‘We all wish him well in his future endeavours.’
In his role, Stacey taught a sixth year diploma unit – the Making Architecture Research Studio.
His private work includes projects including East Croydon Station, Thames Water Tower, Enschede Integrated Transport Interchange, Art House in Chelsea, Expertex Textile Centrum and Ballingdon Bridge.
He has also edited and authored a number of architecture books, including Concrete: A Studio Design Guide.
Stacey had not responded to a request for a comment from Architects’ Journal at the time this story was published.
