I joined the live+work scheme at Balfron Tower from 2012-16. Realising the importance of living and working inside what took architect Ernö Goldfinger over 30 years to design from his initial proposal, more than justified my application for an extended period of research at the University of the Arts London. Taking a quote from Goldfinger made in 1942 as a starting point, I am investigating the potential of the non-specialist in relation to archives associated with Balfron Tower. The Chelsea Arts Club Trust / Barry Flanagan Award for PhD study has enabled me to undertake full time research, which is due for submission in 2018.
