Expertise Summary

Michael Stacey is Chair in Architecture and Director of Architecture at the University of Nottingham, where he leads the Zero Carbon Architecture Research Studio [ZCARS]; which focuses on the design of zero carbon homes in Nottingham, which this year includes an entry to Madrid: Solar Decathlon 2010. He is also Research Professor at University of Waterloo, Ontario. His research is centred on extending the boundaries of the possible, whilst combining quality and affordability and thus informing the built environment. Themes within his research include: digital fabrication, form finding in components and architecture, offsite manufacture, fa├žade design and procurement, emergent materials and sustainability. Current research programmes include is the study of zero carbon architecture, the development of technology for the built environment over the past 100 years, digital fabrication and architecture, a green guide for aluminium and a studio design guide for the use of concrete.

He is the author of a wide range of publications including the following books: Component Design (2001), Digital Fabricators: Editor (2004), Concrete: A Studio Design Guide (2009) and Making Architecture, Editor with Dr Darren Deane (2010). He writes regularly on architecture and tectonics including a monthly series in Building Design Magazine. His first paper was published in 1985.

Michael Stacey in his professional life combines practice, research, writing and teaching. In 1987 he co- founded Brookes Stacey Randall Architects and in 2004 he re-established Michael Stacey Architects. Product design for the building industry includes the invention of the Aspect 2 integrated composite cladding system, which was manufactured and marketed by Corus. His design portfolio demonstrates a commitment to design excellence, which has been recognised by numerous national and international awards. Key projects include: East Corydon Station, Thames Water Tower, Wembley Gateway Urban Regeneration Masterplan, Enschede Integrated Transport Interchange, Art House Chelsea, Expertex Textile Centrum and Ballingdon Bridge.
