Jackson has attained both his part 1 and part 2 at GSA. Currently, Jackson is employed at PagePark Architects in Glasgow.
The work showcased on this page is a selection of his Stage 5 Diploma, based in Antwerp Belgium. The Project is titled Carve, Craft, Create – An exposition of masonry. It seeks to provide an episodal journey of masonry.
The project hypothesied that a change has been seen in the use/method of craft and masonry in architecture. At one stage masonry was at the heart of a city and craft was at the forefront of architecture. Can certain aspects of craft, craftsmanship, knowledge and skill of building masonry be re-introduced and explored within the city centre, aided by architectural heritage and a place to learn about architectural masonry?
A full synopsis can be read in the attached booklet which contains a selection of research and thinking.
