Head of The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design
Andrew Stone is the Head of The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design.
Andrew studied Interior Design at Middlesex and then a Masters in the History of Modern Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL, and has practiced in various Architecture and Design studios in London.
Andrew's fascination is the interior, and particularly the Interior Designer’s role in producing environments that choreograph inhabitants’ spatial relationship between the city, interior and those daily artefacts and components that support and inform our lives.
He has now been involved with art, architecture and design education for over 25 years, teaching, leading, examining and developing courses throughout the UK.
In 2006, Andrew was one of the founders of Interior Educators (IE), the national subject association for Interiors education in the UK, of which he was Chair (2008-10) and Vice Chair (2010-11). He is on the editorial board of Interiors; Design, Architecture, Culture (Berg Publishers) and for the peer reviewed e-journal, Architecture_Media_Politics_Society.
The context of the Interior, and of his practice as a designer and an academic, is a vital factor not only in reflecting a position but critically in the speculation and connection beyond perceived subject boundaries. The interaction of practice, idea and circumstance are especially, and wonderfully, evident in the School and the vitality of this context informs Andrew's teaching and research and his ambition for The Cass.
