Dr. Luhan, FAIA, is a nationally recognized architect, scholar, author, professor, and academic leader whose work investigates how design, emerging digital technologies, critical theory, pedagogy, practice, and academic-industry partnerships intersect. His doctoral research and dissertation validated the effectiveness of co-created learning within collaborative architectural design studios. The NSF, NEA, DOE, Graham Foundation, Robert Woods Johnson Foundation, and non-traditional industry-based sources fund his research, and the International Foundation of the Centre Canadien d'Architecture used his virtual models in its Design of Cities Prize Competition. Scholars cite his work for its innovative uses of technology in design, digital fabrication, and construction. His professional practice includes award-winning, research-driven projects based upon collaborative relationships with disciplines outside architecture. Before his appointment at Texas A&M, Dr. Luhan was the John Russell Groves Endowed Professor of Architecture at the University of Kentucky College of Design-School of Architecture and a University Research Professor at the Lewis Honors College, the College of Engineering Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments. Before founding his firm, he served as a Senior Designer and Project Architect on acclaimed national and international projects with Agrest & Gandelsonas, Gwathmey Siegel, and Eisenman Architects after interning with Edward Larrabee Barnes in New York.
