Max Olof Karlsson Wisotsky

Lecturer in Architecture & Course Director BA Architecture

Birmingham School of Architecture and Design

Max Wisotsky is a lecturer and head of Year Two architecture at the Birmingham School of Architecture, Faculty of Arts, Design and Media, Birmingham City University.

His personal research and design ethos is centred around ideas of authenticity, narrative, and creating spaces representative of the people who will be using them — using the local and vernacular ideas of culture, design, temporality, and material to create compensatory spaces that bring the people, their architecture, and the environment in which they sit, closer together.

He has done writing and research on narrative and creative writing styles as a method of architectural history and theory production;  exploring architecture’s roles in the cultural, social, and environmental ecologies of our cities; and the conception of a Marxist ecological view as a critical method for architectural history.
