He has published over 100 articles and has delivered over 85 invited lectures in the U.S. and abroad on architectural practice, design theory and research, computing, art, and ethics. In 2003, he was awarded the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture’s Teacher of Year Award, and in 2004 was named a Distinguished Professor by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). His latest writing explores themes in theology and the theory of evolution as it relates to the (human) act of design.
