Joshua Page is an architectural assistant based in London. He completed Part II and I studies at the Macintosh School of Architecture and the University of Bath, where his final project
recieved a nomination for the RIBA Bronze Medal. He has worked for several architectural offices, including Hopkins Architects, where he focussed on the planning and detailed design of both educational and public projects.
His work is focused on the idea of plurality, and the spatial and material relationships that result from it. Pluralism is a social and political philosophy that is centred on the understanding of society as a heterogeneous collection of overlapping social groups, each with their own irreducibly different identities and interests. This pertinent theme is fundamental to the Western ideals of a liberal democratic system, yet the rejection of it is the crux of innumerable global crises.
The acceptance of pluralism means the commitment to sharing a physical and political space with others who we see as equal. It is inherently spatial, and thus inherently architectural. The tension and conflict that result from the negotiation of opposing values is the point of departure for my architectural discourse.
