Dr Craig Stott is a Project Office co-director, Architect and Senior Architecture Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University, UK. Craig leads an undergraduate design studio which situates its explorations with communities of neglected places in post-industrial cities. The Studio acts as the vehicle for Craig’s research, which attempts to determine the impact of ‘Live’ project learning within architectural education by establishing its value for both the students involved and the communities who act as external-collaborators for the work undertaken. The intention is to utilise the power of student design to foster ecological and social sustainability in deprived communities through this pedagogic tool.
