The studio has a strong relationship with world-leading architecture schools. Mike and Anna have taught, lectured, and examined internationally for over twenty years, and Greg has taught at the Bartlett since 2015. Engaging in an active network of both academics and practitioners pushes the innovative practice-based research being undertaken by the studio, as evident in the RIBA Research award-winning and Innovate UK-funded Shell Lace Stent. Teaching also establishes an opportunity for the studio to offer something back to the profession, through helping to educate the next generation of architects.
