Tom Emerson will present works by his practice, 6a architects, and by his students at ETH Zurich that use bricolage and appropriation to construct new architectural narratives from the debris of history.
Tom Emerson founded 6a architects with Stephanie Macdonald in 2001. The London-based practice has recently completed several art galleries and is currently working on a building for Churchill College Cambridge, a studio for Juergen Teller and the MK Gallery in Milton Keynes. Following teaching positions at Cambridge and the AA, he has been professor at ETH Zurich since 2010.
