Dr Harry Willis Fleming's research explores primarily topographical, architectural, and spatial themes within cultural history. He trained originally as a theatre designer and worked as a design consultant before taking up research. The visual and experiential remain an important part of his practice.
Harry's recent scholarly research focus has been the nineteenth-century artist and tower-dweller Richard Cockle Lucas (1800-1883), for which he was awarded a Henry Moore Institute Research Fellowship (2012) and a funded PhD Research Studentship at Middlesex University (2012-17). In 2017, he completed his doctoral thesis on Lucas
He has taught on the 'Advanced Research' module of MA Spatial Cultures and MA Interiors (Architecture and Design) at Middlesex University.
