Susannah Dickinson Granted Tenure with Promotion to Associate Professor
Associate Professor Susannah Dickinson is a registered architect and has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate design studios, support courses, and electives since arriving at SoA in 2009. Her work explores the relationship that computational design and fabrication processes can have in the development of ecologically responsive environments. She has a strong background in digital processes, parametric modeling, BIM, and digital fabrication, largely gained through years of professional experience in the offices of Frank O. Gehry, Los Angeles and SHoP Architects, New York. This technological background is coupled with a belief that architects must be concerned with the entire built and natural environments.
Susannah regularly publishes papers on sustainable design processes, the relationship between digital and analog processes, and architecture and biological systems. In 2014, Susannah received one of only three national Excellence in Teaching Awards from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). Earlier this year, Susannah was accepted to the new Architecture and Urbanism PhD Program at the European Graduate School, EGS in Switzerland.
