In 2014, our graduate program remembers its twentieth year. Distinguished because of its project-based learning and research, the Graduate Architecture Program lately added levels and certificate programs in High-Performance Structures and Conservation and Stewardship to the existing curricular focuses in Urban Design and Sustainability. Our students enjoy overflowing curricular choices and also the chance to utilize a brand new cadre of college: twenty-five new faculty have became a member of the school previously five years. Of these is our new Governor’s Chair in Energy and Urbanism, Phil Enquist.
Enquist (Partner responsible for Urban The perception of SOM Chicago) and the team is going to be dealing with faculty and students on a variety of projects spanning from innovative energy practices in discrete structures to large-scale regional studies. The Governor’s Chair is really a joint appointment between UT and also the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). We daily pursue trans-disciplinary learning that re-invents conventional design/build procedures and explores innovative utilization of traditional materials and sustainable techniques within the built atmosphere.
