Architecture of Analogy

The Author

Cameron McEwan teaches Architectural Design, History and Theory at the UCLan’s Institute of Architecture, and is a Trustee of the AE Foundation, an independent organisation for architecture and education. Cameron studied architecture at Dundee School of Architecture followed by a PhD on the architect Aldo Rossi and the Analogical City at the Geddes Institute for Urban Research, University of Dundee, Scotland. Cameron’s research focuses on the relationship between architecture, representation and subjectivity to engage the city as a critical project.

Cameron has taught at Dundee School of Architecture where he co-led the rooms+cities MArch Unit with Lorens Holm, Edinburgh Napier University School of Arts and Wuhan School of Architecture, China. His texts and drawings have been published nationally and internationally in exhibitions and journals including: JAE, Drawing On, Urban Blur, InVisible Culture, Outsiders for the 2014 “Fundamentals” Venice Biennale, and elsewhere.

Cameron is presently working on a book project entitled Analogical City. The book is a close-reading of architect Aldo Rossi’s notion of the analogical city toward a new, collective, political and productive possibility.

    Dear Cameron McEwan,

    I noticed your mention to my presentation at IUAV. Recently, I published an essay on architecture and analogy related to the work of Eduardo Souto de Moura in a book along with Philip Ursprung. Perhaps it holds some interest to you own research. If so, I can be contacted via the website of my office in Lisbon ( All the best and congratulations on you own findings,

    Diogo Seixas Lopes
