Professor Seibold has over 30 years of practice, construction, and teaching experience and has been a licensed architect in the state of Kansas for over 20 years. During the middle to late 1990’s he spent five years as program Director, re-organizing with his colleagues, the program at Andrews University. Within the last decade Professor Seibold has worked on the design of the new School of Architecture building and initiated a practicum program for students in the final semester of their professional degree program.
Professor Seibold’s interest and expertise is in general architectural practice ranging from design theory and ethics to design, building pathologies and system’s integration. He has been involved with construction, business organization, and “real world” application of knowledge all his life. Most recent research includes testing the application of Building Information Modeling to preemptively simulate the consequences of design decisions. Particular focus is given to buildings that are institutional/commercial in scale and constitute a genre of building methods most common to heavy commercial grade construction as this seems to be a challenging transition for students to make in regard to design thinking, i.e. standards, systems, legal constraints, assemblies, conservation, finishes, best practices, etc.
