Personal profile

Other

Gary A. Boyd is Professor of Architecture at Queen’s University, Belfast. Graduating from the University of Strathclyde in 1997, he took academic posts in University College, Dublin and University College, Cork, before joining Queen’s in September 2013. He was Head of Architecture at Queen's from 2016-2019.

In 2018, he was awarded a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship for his proposal Architecture and the Face of Coal: Mining and Modern Britain. This investigates the production of enlightened and humane approaches to architecture throughout the twentieth century as a response to the extreme conditions associated with coal mining, a critical and strategic facet of the British economy.

He was also project-leader on a Getty Foundation Keeping it Modern grant (2018-21) which investigated approaches to conservation in the award-winning St Brendan's Community School, Birr, designed by Peter and Mary Doyle in the 1970s.

He was appointed joint-curator/commissioner (with John McLaughlin) of the Irish Pavilion, for the 14th Architecture Biennale, Venice 2014. Following this he was appointed joint-commissioner/curator for Making Ireland Modern, a major exhibition touring the Republic of Ireland in 2016 as one of the key strands in the Irish Arts Council's 1916-2016 cultural programme.

Other research interests include the design of housing, prefabrication in architecture, curation and the representations of architecture, aspects of designed urbanity, and the architectures of industry and other forms of production.
