Gem is primarily an academic, with the odd flare-up in writing, curating and designing. She has been teaching undergrad and postgrad students for almost a decade in architecture, interior architecture, urban design and design thinking. Having essays and articles published in much of the architectural press; mark, frame, blueprint, arch daily, architizer, inhabit and more, Barton has recently extended this writing to include conference papers and book deals.
With stints at Tate Britain, drawings residencies, founding new initiatives such as Magic & Mafia and Process|or Barton's diary is somewhat hectic but she always finds the time to speak at events such as May Design Series and Clerkenwell Design Week and judge competitions for the likes of Architizer and Philips.
Gem is currently writing her first book, for Laurence King Publishers and is planning a second with Phaidon.
Cara is an arts consultant, writer/commentator, curator and project manager. She is undertaking a PhD at University of Brighton to test her theory of relocalism, the practice of grassroots arts-based or led tactical interventions in the urban realm and the affects participation in these projects have on people and place. Cara has a career spanning 14 years, specialising in visual arts; architecture/built environment; cultural learning; and collaborative and networked practice.
Cara initiates her own arts-led built environment and placemaking interventions, such as LookUp, and is a co-founder and director of architecture collective, Threshold. Cara writes on arts and urban issues for amongst others, the Guardian, ArtsProfessional, Frame and Reference, engage, AN - Artists News Letter, academic journals and online magazines including Global Urbanist and This Big City.
