As a practicing and licensed architect in the state of Colorado, my expertise lies in the practical application of architectural theory and technical methods. The courses I teach at CU are experience-based.
ARCH 2115 - Architecture Materials and Methods
An introduction to both standard and innovative building materials this course exposes students to the elements and processes used to in constructing buildings. Through lecture, technical drawing, material research and exposure to practicing professionals, students build a foundation of knowledge necessary to approach the specification and design of materials as well as to foster a curiosity in the innovative frontiers of assembly, aesthetics and sustainable life-cycle considerations. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 2100.
ARCH 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Architecture
Dealing with problems at an intermediate level of complexity this architecture studio emphasizes the interaction of form, programmatic use, human behavior and context in creating structure. Studio options may include a client-based community engaged project, real world applications, and/or result in a physical product. Students work across analog and digital platforms to produce high quality and portfolio-worthy work.
ENVD 1120 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Architecture
Focusing on the languages of design, as well as on traditional and digital methods of visualizing architectural ideas and forms, this course builds on the skills learned in Studio 1 and begins incorporating the dynamic forces that shape our buildings.
