Trained at the University of Cambridge, he worked as an architect in the USA, UK and Hong Kong before returning to Cambridge to do a PhD on 17th century carpentry. This was followed by Post-Doctoral research into brickwork which led to his first book, Brick: a World History (Thames and Hudson, 2003). He went on to write Building St Pauls (Thames and Hudson, 2005) which explored 17th century building in England. He has published widely on building construction and teaches architecture at the University of Cambridge. He is currently Chair of the Construction History Society.
