Jack has experience in housing and urban planning and is passionate about the future role of design in policy and decision making. He is keen to understand how we might shape the future of public service and local government, and recast it's relationship to collective action and civic society.
Prior to joining the IU Jack trained and worked as an architect in the UK and in Denmark. Previous projects included a research project on 21st century urban development in Denmark. A project which focused on housing market economy, local government structure, city regeneration and policy design and was featured in the 15th International Architecture Biennale, Venice. Jack has also worked on research and design proposals for contemporary ruralism in a provincial European context and wrote his thesis about strategies for modern rural life in Denmark.
Outside the IU Jack is part of a urban think-tank In-between Economies based between London and Copenhagen, and is part of the design collective CMPNDM who design and build small scale public installations.
