The architecture faculty aspires to teach sound thinking, practical skills, and rigorous scholarship in the discipline of architecture; and promotes students who: Craft buildings that are dignified, durable and purposeful; Design communities that foster civility; Serve mankind in accord with their professional and Christian vocation; Seek the virtues of joy, beauty, wholeness and moderation in their lifelong pursuit of learning. All this for God's honor and His glory until the risen Christ comes again.

Biography

Over 15 years of professional practice experience in multi-disciplined design firms provides the basis for delivering technical courses such as Integrative Design.  Experience with both the project architect and project management roles inform course content that deals with professional services, technical systems, and the regulatory environment.  This practice experience also provides the foundation for directing the community service and student internship programs, which have a professional component.

Recent scholarly activity in the areas of vernacular architecture, the rural landscape, and heritage restoration inform the direction of Professor Smith’s design studio course.  Students are asked to investigate the role of architecture in the rural landscape, and to consider how vernacular and classical patterns inform current architectural design. Professor Smith was awarded the Daniel T. Augsburger Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2012.
