Alan Balfour writes on the cultural imagination. His most recent book SOLOMON'S TEMPLE, Myth, Conflict and Faith (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012) studies the constructive and destructive power of faith present in the myths and realities of one place Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Other books include Creating a Scottish Parliament (Finlay Brown, 2005), and three books in Wiley/Academy’s World Cities series, New York in 2001, Shanghai in 2000 and Berlin in 1995. This and an earlier book BERLIN: The Politics of Order: 1737-1989 (Rizzoli 1990), received AIA International Book Awards.
Balfour was the year 2000 recipient of the Topaz Medal, the highest recognition given in North America to an educator in architecture. Designintelligence named him among their choice of 30 exemplary design educators for 2013.]]>

The development of strong parametric modeling systems for design and fabrication in the construction industry are revolutionizing the methods, tools and practices throughout architecture and construction.
Papers and Conferences
Developing interoperability between various applications with emphasis on various building models, including IFC and CIS/2; developing "next generation" integration and data exchange technology; integration process coordination with data exchange.
Papers and Conferences:
Future architects and engineers will rely on product model repositories as their project database. There is much work to be done to make such repositories easy to use, intuitive and effective. This includes graphical interface development, query methods and transaction schemes, as examples.
Papers and Conferences
With a new generation of architectural and building industry design tools, especially based on parametric design and rule-based design, there is a need for critical assessment, improved specification, and the development of advanced prototypes.
Papers and Conferences
Cognitive models of design that support tool and interface development; studies and technological support for design collaboration.
Papers and Conferences
The benefits of product model repositories are that they support new more integrated design processes, integrating design with analysis, fabrication, erection and other downstream influences; processes also are the basis for supporting the definition of product data models.
Building Model Repositories, new processes, all allow and involve new approaches to the management of deisgn; I am interrsted in such issues as change management, review procedures, and design coordination.

His current research focuses on the representation of fabrication logics and processes within BIM environments. His current projects, funded by the Department of Energy, include the design of innovative PV systems and the design of modular components for nuclear reactors. Dr. Gentry is also the project lead for the Building Information Modeling for Masonry or BIM-M Initiative at Georgia Tech. The BIM-M initiative is developing masonry product and BIM modeling schemas, and workflows to implement BIM tools in masonry design, construction and supply chains.
His current work in the materials area focuses on the development of high-modulus FRP reinforcements for use in strengthening juvenile pine laminated timbers. His work in the structural systems area is focused on concrete masonry, jointly with Tristan Al-Haddad and Andres Cavieres. He recently completed project (with Charlene Bayer of the Georgia Tech Research Institute and Michael Gamble) examining the future of Life Cycle Assessment in architectural practice.
Dr. Gentry is the former Associate Director of Research in the Advanced Wood Products Laboratory and is currently a faculty leader in the College of Architecture’s Digital Fabrication Laboratory.

George B. Johnston is Professor of Architecture at Georgia Tech and principal of Johnston+Dumais [architects]. He has over 35 years of experience as an architect, educator, academic leader, and cultural historian. George was educated at Emory University (Ph.D. in American Cultural History, 2006), Rice University (M.Arch., 1984) and Mississippi State University (B.Arch., 1979). He teaches courses in architectural and urban design, cultural theory, and social history of architectural practice; and his research interrogates the social, historical, and cultural implications of making architecture in the American context. He is author of the award-winning book from The MIT Press, Drafting Culture: A Social History of Architectural Graphic Standards, which has been lauded for its insights into the ongoing technological transformation of the profession. As both practicing architect and cultural historian, George is open to and supportive of research and design projects that involve themes of memory and modernity; institutions of cultural exhibition and display; changing design technologies and representational practices, approaches to American vernacular architecture and cultural landscape; and the critique of the everyday. Propelling his inquiries is this central concern: What recuperative role can architects’ practices play in this age of universalizing technology?

Benjamin Flowers joined the faculty of architecture in 2005. His work examines architecture as a form of social activity situated within the intersecting spheres of politics, culture, and economy. Looking in particular at skyscrapers and stadiums, he focuses on the ways these structures are constructed, the ends to which they are used, and the nature of public reaction to them. His research has attracted recognition and funding from Columbia University’s Buell Center for Architecture, Cornell University’s John Nolen Fellowship, the Society of Architectural Historians, and the Hagley Museum and Library. His most recent book is Architecture in an Age of Uncertainty (Ashgate Press, 2014). His first book, Skyscraper: The Politics and Power of Building New York City in the Twentieth Century (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2009), was named a 2010 Outstanding Academic Title in Architecture by Choice Magazine. Other recent publications include "Stadium Architecture, Visual Iconography, and the Shaping of Urban and Sporting Identities," in The Visual in Sport (Routledge, 2011). He is currently completing a book on stadia around the world, Sport and Architecture (Routledge, expected 2015). He is the director of Stadia Lab.
Flowers was the College of Architecture's 2012 Georgia Power Professor of Excellence. In 2008 Flowers was awarded the Outstanding Teacher Award from the College of Architecture. Flowers received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and his B.A. from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. He grew up in Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Bulgaria, Romania, and Washington, DC.

Architectural history and theory
Within this broad field of inquiry, I am currently engaged in three major projects. In Skyscraper: The Politics and Power of Building New York City in the Twentieth Century (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2009), I explore the role of culture and ideology in shaping the construction of skyscrapers and the way wealth and power have operated to reshape the urban landscape.
My second research project explores the architecture of urban football stadiums. As with my research on skyscrapers, I am interested not only in the technology that allows for the construction of these monumental structures, but the larger social and political agendas yoked to their creation.
My third research explores the intersection of race and space in the discipline and practice of architecture seeking to uncover how divisions of race were materialized in the built environment of the twentieth century, and how the practices of architecture and urban planning variously confronted, assuaged, and elided these divisions.
