My work in practice from 1985 included internationally renowned and award winning projects with MacCormac Jamieson Prichard Architects (London): e.g. Fitzwilliam College Chapel, Cambridge (1988-93);  Southwark Intermediate Concourse, Jubilee Line, London (1992-94); and Cable and Wireless Teaching College, Coventry (1990-1993); and with Thomson Usher Wiszniewski (London), 3rd prize in the international competition The Richard Attenborough Centre for Disability and The Arts, Leicester (1993).


Since 1996, as partner in Wiszniewski Thomson Architects, built and project work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally. Wiszniewski Thomson Architects won the Royal Scottish Academy Gold Medal for Architecture in 2006 for the ‘Water House', Crieff.  In partnership with Cadell2, Wiszniewski Thomson Architects won the Roses Design Award for best proposed building and The Scottish Design Awards for best proposed place-making for their project Bellfield Dyke Housing, 2007.


Academic papers have been published in China, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Spain, Turkey, UK, and USA with core interests being the architectural-political-philosophical overlap on issues of representation and production.


In my research and pedagogy, design and theory are intersecting practices.
