Research Interests & Experience

Cameron’s research focuses on the relationship between architecture, representation and subjectivity to engage the city as a critical project. Close-reading of architectural, political and philosophic texts, drawings, projects and theoretical design approaches are developed as critical methods toward a reflection on the urban imagination, the transformation of how we think about our relationship to the city and the world, and how we construct forms of living. Cameron is presently working on a book project entitled Analogical City.
