Adrian Hawker graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow and the Architectural Association in London. His architectural designs, drawings and constructs have been awarded, exhibited and published internationally. Since 2004, he has run a masters unit at the University of Edinburgh under the banner of Island Territories. This programme, which he operates in collaboration with the artist Victoria Clare Bernie, has been developing experimental processes of urban mapping that inform radical architectural propositions for such cities as Valletta (Malta), Venice (Italy), Klaksvik (Faroe Islands) and Nicosia (Cyprus). Adrian has also lectured and taught in Australia, Germany, Denmark and the United States.
