Teaching Firm in Residence

The Cummings School of Architecture in 2007 established an Architecture Teaching Firm in Residence Program that is unique in the United States, with the intention to bring the highest quality educator practitioners to the School from the region, the country and abroad for semester long stays.

The Teaching Firm in Residence Program involves two to three lead participants from a noted firm teaching in the graduate architectural design studio. Additional firm-wide resources are engaged for studio lectures, design studio review critiques at RWU and at the firm, and visits to the firm and to sites. Teaching Firms in Residence often offer a public lecture in the Cummings School of Architecture Public Events series, and often an exhibition as well.
