Southern Polytechnic State University
Architecture Studio Professor for Fall 2013
Marietta, GA 30060 United States
Southern Polytechnic State University, Department of Architecture, located in the Atlanta metropolitan area, is currently seeking proposals up to four (4) Fifth-Year Focus Studios for the fall of 2013. The Fifth-Year Focus Studios are intended to introduce the student to design research and its application, while adhering to creativity, critical thinking, processes of making, and constructability. The annual Focus Studio is an intrinsic part of the professional core of the Architecture Program and is designed to foster a strong relationship between the program, our students, and the profession as a whole. All qualified fifth year students have the option to select a studio critic who will broaden their area of interest in a subject-based studio.
Submittals for teaching Focus Studios are open to all design professionals and educators. The ideal candidate is one who is currently engaged in an innovative body of work that informs architectural design. The successful prospectus is one that engages the educational forum as a means of advancing research toward its eventual application in practice. SPSU Department of Architecture recognizes that such critical research is broad and diverse in scope and may include innovative approaches in specific or multidisciplinary areas of design. The 2013 call for proposals invites members of the design community to propose how such research can be critically applied in an architecture studio.
Focus Studio Exhibition 2013: Selected studio work will be held in the end of semester.
Polychrome 2013: Selected work will be featured in the departmental publication.
Department might support travel funding if Focus Studio research + design work is accepted in the peer-reviewed conference.
