Laura Allen

Laura Allen is Senior Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. As part of Smout Allen, with Mark Smout, their work takes two routes, architectural competitions, where the particular rigour of the competition brief, site and program provide the basis for new investigations and, conceptual design projects which test out the agenda and methodology of the design research practice. Smout Allen focuses on the dynamic relationship between the natural and the man made and how this can be revealed to enhance the experience of the architectural landscape.
