ALEPHOGRAPH: THE WORK OF LUKE CASPAR PEARSON, ARCHITECTURAL ARTIST, RESEARCHER AND BARTLETT UNIT 4 TUTOR.
STUDIES INTO ARCHITECTURAL ARGUMENTS FORMED THROUGH DELINEATION.
Alephograph is the work of Luke Caspar Pearson, encompassing art and architectural research into drawing and fabrication.
Luke currently teaches Unit 4 of the Bartlett Architecture BSc course at University College London, alongside Ana Monrabal-Cook - pursuing interrogations into the role of representation and increasing ubiquity of digital tools for 'seeing' in the formation of new architectural typologies. This teaching work reflects a research interest in the process of drawing-as-manufacture, the interface between hand and substrate and architectures defined through delineation as a thought process. Luke also coordinates Research Cluster 6 on the MArch Graduate Architectural Design programme at the Bartlett B.PRO where his students interrogate the implications of computational processes on the practice of drawing and its translation into architectural form.
Luke has previously edited an edition of the periodical ELEVEN, and as part of You and Pea was part of a team commissioned to produce a 'Little Wonder's structure for the London Mayor's Office to celebrate the 2012 Games - the Universal Tea Machine.
He has previously been the recipient of the RIBA Bronze Medal, Leverhulme Trust Grant, UCL GSRS Research Scholarship and exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of British Architects, bstore London, Slade School of Art and the Bartlett School of Architecture.
