Irénée Scalbert

I am an architecture critic based in London. I graduated from the Architectural Association in 1982 and I practiced as an architect for the next six years. I then taught at the AA School between 1989 and 2006 where I was responsible for the History and Theory programme in the first three years of the curriculum. I was Visiting Design Critic at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard and I have been a lecturer at SAUL since 2006. In addition to being a teacher, I write articles and essays on a wide range of issues, notably the first historical appraisals of the work of James Stirling and Alison and Peter Smithson. I curated an exhibition on Jean Renaudie and wrote a book on his work, A Right to Difference (AA, 2004). I am a member of the editorial board of AA Files and a regular guest lecturer.
