Edward Simpson (Rome Prize-Holder in Architecture, October 2013-March 2014) is an architect. He studied at Cambridge University and London Metropolitan University, his Diploma Thesis focusing on public spaces that are formed by housing through proposals for Carpenters Estate in Stratford. Since 2007 he has worked at DSDHA in London.

Edward’s work in Rome considers housing projects built during the period 1895-1982, and specifically the form and detail of shared and circulation spaces that connect the home to the street. Central to these studies are the resident’s individual experience of this journey and the spaces within which residents are able to socialize.

Edward Simpson (Rome Prize-Holder in Architecture, ottobre 2013-marzo 2014) è architetto. Ha studiato all’Università di Cambridge e alla London Metropolitan University; la sua tesi di diploma era incentrata sugli spazi pubblici formati dalle abitazioni attraverso proposte per il Carpenters Estate a Stratford. Dal 2007 lavora presso DSDHA, Londra.

Il lavoro di Edward a Roma esamina insediamenti abitativi costruiti nel periodo 1895-1982, e in particolare sulla forma e il dettaglio degli spazi comuni e di circolazione che collegano casa e strada. Cruciali per questi studi sono l’esperienza individuale di tali percorsi dei residenti, e gli spazi entro i quali essi possono socializzare.
