Alan Dunlop accepts Liverpool architecture post
Alan Dunlop has accepted the post of visiting professor at Liverpool University’s School of Architecture succeeding Michael Wilford in the role which includes assisting final year students through their thesis design.

Dunlop commented: “The school is very highly regarded in the UK and internationally” says Dunlop. The faculty are exceptional architects, teachers and communicators and the students talented and motivated. Liverpool is also a great city, much like Glasgow and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Head of School Dr. Andrew Crompton added: "Liverpool University is the oldest accredited school of architecture in the world. Alan joins our MArch team after the successful completion of his role as external examiner at XJTLU University, our joint venture university in Suzhou China, where he helped guide the new school of architecture toward RIBA validation in October. We are very pleased to have him on board."

Dunlop will continue to serve as a visiting professor at Robert Gordon University’s Scott Sutherland School of Architecture.

That didn't take long for a bitter student to appear

For High-rise student housing to tower over Cathedral Street read Bewleys Hotel, Bath Street. Same difference. One is atrocious (and it is) and the other.....

You're getting more like chantelle every day jimbo, don't care much for Mr. Dunlop myself , likes the sound of his own voice too much but I like Bewleys design, it's a great hotel.

Dear Neil C, jimbo? Tut, tut. That's not very nice. I'll skip the BC reference. You say, 'it's a GREAT hotel'? Yeh, right. You sound like Archie Macpherson. I was only pointing out the disparity between a design being labelled atrocious (which it is) re Cathedral Street and the incongruous urban 'error' of the Bewley Hotel of which the professor-to-be partly put his name to - and invited discussion. That was all.

Who is Archie Macpherson. Does he teach at Strathclyde? "incongrous urban error" eh. You're clearly astute jimbo but try the top floor of Bewleys some night with your monkey. View is amazing.......... and it's cheap.

Me and monkey prefer Ben Lui if its a view we want. And it's free. That way, there's no sh*tty testosterone-driven 'architecture' to even spoil our view.

I wish GM+AD would re-form....they just aren't as successful on their own. GM is the business AD is the showman. Glasgow needs you both to come back. It has been years - must be over it now...

I get as jealous as the next person over someone else's success, but jeezo there are some embittered and vitriolic comments above. Where is the festive spirit?
