FACULTY

Faculty at The School of Architecture at Taliesin work collaboratively to provide graduate students with a vibrant learning experience.  The approach to teaching is derived from an experiential learning model first advocated by the founders of the School as ‘learning by doing.’  Faculty plan an active and important role in the evolving pedagogy, and student progress.

Quartz covers Exhibit Columbus.

“Another Miller Prize-winning installation, called Another Circle, is presented in a grassy knoll at Columbus’s main public park. From afar, the shrapnels of limestone look like a contemporary Stonehenge or perhaps an avant-garde graveyard. Architects Benjamin Aranda and Chris Lasch used a GPS device to choose the precise spot of each stone and allowed artisans to decide on the shapes. The result, they explain, creates an assortment of seats, stools and picnic tables for park goers”
