Dr Jon Goodbun trained as an architect, and today is a researcher, practitioners and educator at the RCA, the University of Westminster (Msc Advanced Environmental Design), and the Bartlett (MArch). His research focuses on the intersection of ecological theory, cybernetics, anthropology and urbanism. Recent publications include Scarcity: Architecture in an Age of Depleting Resources (Wiley) and Design of Scarcity (Strelka).
Dr Jon Goodbun teaches on the BA Architecture and MSc Architecture and Environmental Design at University of Westminster, the MArch at Bartlett/UCL, and the MA Environmental Architecture at the Royal College of Art.
Dr Jon Goodbun's practice includes architecture, ecological urbanism, design consultancy and design activism. After doing time at Fosters he was a partner in the practice WAG for several years, and today works as Rheomode co-leads Derailed - a nomadic summer school.
His work explores the tensions between the planetary and the personal, between geo-ecological politics and neuro-ecological aesthetics, to develop sites and programmes which are both critical and operative, and which test the possibilities of spatial research and the architectural project in the contemporary period.
