Portsmouth School of Architecture (ARCH)
Ms Heather Coleman
BA (Hons), MA (C.N.A.A.)
I joined the University of Portsmouth in 1991 and lectured in the School of Art, Design and Media before coming to the School of Architecture in 2008. I currently teach on both undergraduate and postgraduate Architecture and Interior Design courses, primarily in the area of contextual, historical and theoretical studies. I am the Dissertation co-ordinator for the School of Architecture and I also co-ordinate the Thesis project for Masters students in Interior Design, Urban Design, Sustainable Architecture and Historic Buildings Conservation.
My research interests include museology and spatial theory, public and site specific art, cross-cultural consumption and twentieth century interior design histories. My pedagogic interests include strategies for the integration of theory and practice in Design education.
