The significant works of architecture we witness today may be viewed as products not only of the creativity of their architects but that of the society and culture that commissioned them. My teaching has incorporated this view of architecture as a cultural and collaborative art in the courses covering history and theory. In the studio we examine contemporary culture and media as it is related to design as well as human factors, issues of social sustainability and collaborative design.
