James Harrington

Architectural Designer / Masters Student at UoS

I am an architectural designer, working with Studio Polpo, and studying MArch Architecture (RIBA Part 2) at Sheffield School of Architecture (SSoA). I have previously worked in practice with Levitate Architecture & Design Studio, Ash Sakula Architects, and with The Umbrella Factory, a SSoA Live Project for Theatre Deli.

I am currently developing a dissertation on contemporary art in Sheffield - exploring the spaces where art is produced and exhibited by institutions, collectives, charitable organisations and DIY groups, and its influence on the development of Sheffield's built and cultural environment.

Specialisms and research interests:

- Cross-disciplinary

- Arts, Culture and Heritage.

- Creative Reuse of Existing Buildings

- Temporary / 'Meanwhile' Use
