Programme Director

Mark Smout is Professor of Architecture and Landscape Futures at The Bartlett School of Architecture, where, in addition to directing Urban Design MArch, he also runs Architecture MArch Unit 11 with Professor Laura Allen. His design research practice Smout Allen undertakes work proposing that the built environment can develop a reading of, and synergy with, its surroundings informed by understanding the complex interactions of living and artificial systems, environmental processes and emerging technologies.

Smout Allen have produced award winning designs for the East Anglian landscape, published 'Augmented Landscapes', issue 28 of the seminal Pamphlet Architecture series, and produced the centre-piece installation for the Landscape Futures exhibition in the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. Their most recent constructed work, commissioned by the Mayor of London as part of the 2012 Olympic Festival, was a large binary calculator powered by marbles that made tea for passers-by. In 2013, Smout Allen exhibited their work at both the RIBA and the AA with a project looking at energy supply and demand in collaboration with Williams Formula 1.

They have won the prestigious Royal Academy Award for Architecture and represented the UK at the Venice Biennale in 2012 and the Chicago Architecture Biennial in 2015. In the summer of 2015, Smout Allen exhibited a new project ‘L.A.T.B.D’ in Los Angeles, speculating on the future of the city in collaboration with Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG. Smout Allen have held notable Professorships in Denmark and California and regularly lecture throughout the world.
