Daryl Martin is a lecturer in Sociology at the University of York. He is co-director of the Centre for Urban Research (CURB) at York, and has long-standing interests in the areas of architectural theory, cultural geography and urban studies. His current research lies primarily in the intersection of architecture, embodiment and health. This interest has grown out of recent research with a cancer care provider to explore how the design of its buildings shapes their visitors’ experience of the care it provides and facilitates the work of their staff. Currently, Daryl is involved as a Co-Investigator on the ESRC funded 'Buildings in the Making' project, which trains the focus back to the design stage, seeking to understand the work of architects as they translate ideas of care into the buildings they plan and develop.
