Tim Stonor made visiting professor at the Bartlett

Jeremy Till has been appointed head of Central Saint Martins. He will take over from Jane Rapley in August.

The appointment, announced on Twitter this morning, is a significant promotion from his current job as dean of the school of architecture and the built environment at the University of Westminster.

Before that he was head of the school of architecture at the University of Sheffield and before that at University College London.

He has also worked as an architect, designing the award-winning 9 Stock Orchard Street with his partner and wife Sarah Wigglesworth.

He is also a previous curator of the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

He joins Central Saint Martins as the art college begins a new chapter of its history on a new site at King’s Cross, designed by Stanton Williams.

Welcoming his appointment, Nigel Carrington, Rector of University of the Arts London, said: “Jeremy has a tremendous track record as a creative practitioner and as an academic leader. He knows our sector well and has been working very successfully in the tough environment in which all universities now find themselves. Most importantly, he is filled with enthusiasm and admiration for CSM and relishes the prospect of working with its staff and students.”

  • Meanwhile Tim Stonor, director of Space Syntax and an honourary senior lecturer at the Bartlett, has been appointed visiting professor by the institution.

He said: “It was at the Bartlett that I came to realise that bringing the worlds of creative practice and scientific research together is not only right and proper but necessary if we are to avoid the failures of design - the housing estates and new towns of recent decades - that have blighted the professions of architecture and planning.

“As visiting professor I will be working to increase the interactions between professional practice and academia.”

    After what Spiller did at Greenwich, students at or going to CSM may want to get out while they still can. Till may not do the same of course but who would want to chance it when you can get out now while your grades and prospects are still good. I would just transfer out at the end of the year to another college or choose another college through UCAS if I were there or applying. From what I have seen and heard of Till there would be little to reassure me that he would be a sound choice for CSM.
