Andrew Peckham is Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture at the University of Westminster. The primary focus of his teaching has been a longstanding Diploma design studio, complemented by contributions to History & Theory, Contextual Studies, and tutoring the Diploma dissertation and MA theses. Following a sabbatical in 2001-02 his responsibilities have moved from administration towards research. This has generated a series of recent publications and collaborations. He has an ongoing collaboration with Torsten Schmiedeknecht (University of Liverpool) and Charles Rattray (University of Dundee) following their jointly edited Rationalist Traces issue of Architectural Design. They are actively seeking funding for a prospective European-wide 'rationalist network'.
