Marcel's applied research deals with design build delivery models for architectural projects, environmental product design and innovative/entrepreneurial practices. Through Clinical Teaching I am able to apply research and actually design/build projects of varying scope and size & complexity with students and other faculty. I do this through a highly collaborative processes and by applying innovative models around design and design thinking. Furthermore, my applied research focuses on using technologies around digital design and manufacturing as well as investigation around manufacturing processes and material connections using parametric software and fabrication strategies.

ENVD 4420 - Senior Capstone Seminar
Advanced seminar focuses on theoretical concerns and practical issues inherent in environmental design and planning. Views concerns and issues in terms of setting, processes, and planning and design outcomes. Provides a critical synthesis of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of planning and design education.
