Thomas Deckker Architect: Education
Thomas Deckker is both a teacher of architecture and involved in the principles of architectural education and curriculum development. He is currently an Visiting Researcher of the Brazil Institute, King's College London and a Fellow of the Geddes Institute for Urban Research, The University of Dundee. He was also on the research oversight committee of the Public Spaces and the Role of the Architect" research project in the School of Architecture at the University of Westminster.

Thomas Deckker was invited to become a Visiting Fellow in the School of Architecture at the The University of Dundee. He developed an MSc course in Sustainable Urban Design, jointly ran an MArch Unit (with Charles Rattray), ran a 4th Year Design Research Unit on landscape and lectured and supervised dissertations in History and Theory in the 3rd Year Humanities course. Thomas Deckker ran Degree Unit G at the University of East London between 1991 and 1999. During this time he evolved a teaching programme which focussed on developing the students' direct experiences of architecture.

A video for The Atelier Project in Teaching demonstrates the ethos and practices of the Unit from both the teachers' and students' viewpoints.

Thomas Deckker based his conference paper on architectural education at the First International Seminar on the Teaching of the Built Environment [SIEPAC], University of São Paulo, Brazil on his work in Degree Unit G.

Thomas Deckker also ran regular workshops in the School of Architecture at Universität Liechtenstein from 1996 to 2003.
