Martin Gledhill

BSc (Hons)  BArch MA (Jungian)

Profile

Martin Gledhill qualified at the University of Bath under Michael Brawne, Peter Smithson and Patrick Hodgkinson. For 25 years he worked as a practising architect, both within his own practice, Gledhill Walker Architects, and with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios amongst others.

Having been a visiting critic and tutor for many years Martin joined the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering as a full time member of staff in 2005. He is currently BSc Architecture Year 4 Design Studio Coordinator and Admissions & Fair Access Tutor.

Martin has particular interest in the symbolism and 'spirituality' of architecture, arising from a life long interest in Jungian psychology and theology. The connections between analytical psychology and the design process form part of an ongoing research paper.  In September 2014, Martin completed an MA Jungian and Post Jungian Studies. He is now developing his dissertation topic 'The Tower - Myth and Fiction' as a PhD and hopefully a book will emerge that examines Jung and Architecture.

Martin travels widely looking at contemporary architecture in order to inform studio teaching. He believes that the craft of building is an integral part of any conceptual agenda.  Moreover, open, lively and dedicated discussion with every student is at the core of what he endeavours to do.
