Ways of Seeing: Brett Steele

For the final film in our Ways of Seeing series, we visit the offices of Brett Steele, director of the Architectural Association School of Architecture

For over 10 years, Brett Steele has been the director of the Architectural Association School of Architecture, the only private architectural school in Britain. It’s a position that has seen him bring more than 150 teachers to the school from Europe, Asia and the Americas, while updating its curriculum and developing new departments to ensure it remains relevant to contemporary architecture.

In the last installment of our Ways of Seeing series, which, over the past fortnight, has examined the unique perspectives of six creatives, Brett discusses how he got into architecture, the joy he finds in his work and how he builds his identity around his glasses.

See below for more from the Ways of Seeing series.
