Dr Yuri Hadi is an experienced lecturer with a rich history of working in the higher education industry within the UK and Internationally.

He is the founder of the States of Urbanicity (Unit 2) Group in MArch Part 2 (ARB/RIBA/LAM) for Year 5 and 4. States of Urbanicity is a Unit that explores the study and speculation of architecture in the many states of the urban condition focusing on the growth and decay of urban conditions. We focused on Conceptual Urbanism, an approach that is radical in attempting to shake off the assumption of what a city was, is or should be. Instead of denouncing the chaos and congestion of contemporary urban life, conceptual urbanism experiments out from disruption and disorder.
