Assistant Professor John Marshall will present at the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture 2011 Teachers Seminar, to be held June 16 - 18 at Parsons The New School for Design in New York.
New practices are emerging from partnerships of architects, engineers, and others that blur disciplinary boundaries and advance new techniques in design and construction. Yet in architecture and engineering schools, the strictures of traditional curricula and funding structures for faculty and research prevents the same kind of vital professional promiscuity. Ecological, economic, and professional realities demand alternative models. The conference will be an opportunity to collect and publish peer-reviewed papers, while bringing to the conference speakers from these performative practices.
Marshall’s presentation, “Smart Surfaces: A Multidisciplinary, Hands-on Think Tank”, will take place on Saturday, June 18th as part of Paper Session 4: Inter-disciplinary / Trans-disciplinary Pedagogies.
