Arts Emergency

Mark Parsons


I am a co-founder of Sheffield social enterprise Studio Polpo, a group of architects and academics who design, build, draw, write and teach. I work with undergraduate and masters students at the University of Sheffield, and also freelance for London/Hereford based practice Architype. Studio Polpo is also part of Chopshop CNC, a digital fabrication enterprise. I like cartooning, film, photography, growing food, eating cheese, riding bikes and exploring strange but nearby places.
