Works of architecture may be viewed as a reflection of their architects and of the culture that commissioned them. My teaching has incorporated this view of architecture in the history and theory courses. 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.
