Dr Tarsha Finney is an architectural urbanist, senior research tutor and program lead on the City Design MA, School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art. Previously she was visiting professor in the School of Architecture at the RCA, leading the Intergenerational Cities Research Cluster. Her work is focused on housing, the city and urban change. Her research interests cross several areas: domesticity, the housing project and the role of multi-residential housing in the constitution of the city since the nineteenth century; architectural typology and notions of architectural disciplinary specificity and autonomy; the architectural urbanism of innovation in cities; and the relationship between spatial performance, ownership and governance structures in urban resilience and transformation in cities, with particular reference to ideas of alternate housing and neighbourhood models.
