    Description

    Ruth Morrow, Professor at Queen’s University, Belfast, has been recognised for innovative approaches within Architectural Education and Research. She is an engaged contributor to strategic discussions about the nature of architectural education and research within the profession. Her recent work focuses on applied research based on an understanding of creative processes, inclusive strategies and pedagogical methodologies. Despite a strong commitment to theoretical and revisionist thinking, she finds, as an architect, she can only make sense of and resolve concepts within the realisation of the idea, hence her research is invariably project based, underpinned by an activist and collaborative instinct. She is the co-founder of the spin-out company Tactility Factory and curatorial advisor to a Belfast-based arts organisation PS2. She is currently chair of the RIBA President’s research awards and director of the new interdisciplinary Masters in Sustainable Practices at QUB.
