About me

Dr Corinna Dean is an experienced teacher, critical urbanist and curator who looks at a semiotic reading of the urbanscape, she is driven by an interest in how the urban is communicated, experienced and lived out across cultures, most recently explored on a field study trip of Douala, Cameroon with a French Aid agency and to Kochi, India, to collaborate with the Kochi-Muziri Biennale team.

She holds a PhD from the LSE Cities Programme which was a collaborative doctoral award with Tate Modern and is currently a Lecturer at the University of Westminster.

She launched ARCA, the Archive for Rural Contemporary Architecture, which is an open source archive to encourage participation bottom up, as well as re-engaging cold war structures and other architectural typologies in a rural context. She is engaged in devising cultural projects to bring these sites into the public consciousness through temporary activities such as workshops and creative interpretations.
