I was appointed Assistant Professor of Architectural Building Technology at the New York Institute of Technology’s School of Architecture and Design in Spring, 2011 (after serving as a Visiting Professor the year before). Among many other responsibilities, this appointment will aid the school’s adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM) into the curriculum. The appointment rewarded a very busy academic year in which I taught new SEVEN classes — where I’ve introduced new technology into the curriculum.
Some of the research I’m executing with NYIT is documented in the ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH section of this site.
I also teach a graduate course (ARCH 2226b – Design Computation) in the Yale School of Architecture. The course introduced students to model-based design techniques by first teaching architecture students how to code in Processing (JAVA). That course content can be found at the Design Computation web site.
I also enjoyed an adjunct position in the New York School of Interior Design’s graduate program. Recently, I taught two sections of the MFAIID 636:Construction Documents II course, which required the development of new curriculum.
In the several years I have taught the following courses:
|ARCH 221 – Building Construction I||ARCH 222 – Building Construction II||ARCH 272 – Environmental Site Planning (5)|
|ARCH 291 – Intermediate BIM Analysis (4)||ARCH 291 – Parametric Performance I||ARCH 291 – Parametric Performance II|
|ARCH 291 – Digital Fabrication Techniques||ARCH 327 – Construction Documents* (10)||ARCH 423 – Project Integration Studio (3)|
|ARCH 481 – Professional Practice||ARCH 501 – Thesis Research Studio||ARCH 502 – Thesis Design Studio|
|ARCH 2221b – Computational Design||MFAID 136 – Introduction to Revit||MFAID 636 – Construction Documents II (3)|
