Teaching philosophy

As both an architect and teacher, I am a believer of Winston Churchill’s saying “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” My goal as an educator is to awaken within my students the reality of this ethical situation and promote an existential awareness of their surroundings. It is particularly vital to ask how the architect’s design decisions will affect human experience and behavior. To achieve this one must teach students to think about design philosophically through an environmental psychology lens. As a result, this approach has led me to embrace design, research, and pedagogy that focus on improving the interconnectivity between architecture, culture, spirituality, ecology, and human experience.
