Tim Ivison

Their work has appeared in the Artissima art fair, Turin; Tenderpixel, London; Can Felipe Arts Visuals, Barcelona; Space Studios, London; Museo d’arte Contemporanea Roma; MK Gallery, Milton Keynes; Auto-Italia South East, London; Raid Projects, Los Angeles; and the UCLA Wight Biennial, as well as solo projects at Hilary Crisp and Chisenhale Gallery, both in London.

He is currently awaiting examination of his Ph.D. dissertation at the London Consortium, a multi-disciplinary program that included Birkbeck College, the Tate, the ICA, the Science Museum, and the Architectural Association, where he studied under Mark Cousins. Concurrently, Ivison is a 2014-2016 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Researcher at the Canadian Centre for Architecture


Dan Morrish

Grand-son of a timber-merchant, son of two musicians, has always built: while still at school, a studio in his parent’s back garden, using reclaimed timber and local help; before University, guests’ cabins in a fishing lodge in the Okavango River Delta in Botswana; after his degree, a sailing boat in a marina outside Hong Kong; after his diploma, the schemes he designed with architecture colleagues.

Since joining the architecture profession, he has designed domestic and commercial projects of increasing complexity and scope. But his practice was leading him to spend ever more time in front of a computer, and ever less with building materials. Professional experience confirmed his original instincts: that participation is more effective than consultation; that design decisions are best made on site by craftsmen who have intimate knowledge of the context and materials; that the best materials are often those to hand; that, as Christopher Alexander puts it, the separation of the role of architect and builder does ‘organic damage to the fabric of buildings and society’.
