Danielle Hewitt is the course leader of MA by Project, a multidisciplinary taught research degree. She teaches Critical and Contextual Studies across Architecture, Design, and Fine Art and Photography.
Danielle has a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College and an MA in Architectural History from the Bartlett, University College London (UCL). Prior to teaching Danielle worked in collections management for a number of institutions including the RIBA Drawings Collection. Before joining The Cass, she co-ran the Architectural Association's night school programme, developing a programme of public engagement activities, which included a collaboration with the Sir John Soane's Museum.
Danielle has worked in film, photography, and written and performed text to explore scales of change in the material world. Her work engages a particular interest in the intersection of fine art practice and historical research, and the bearing of such practice on the status of document and narrative. She is currently researching war-time demolition in London.
In addition to her work at The Cass, Danielle teaches a postgraduate architectural design studio at Oxford Brookes University.
