I teach architectural design and technology at Iowa State University. I’m currently working on a book that examines structural, environmental, and material developments in Chicago skyscraper construction between 1870 and 1935. “Architecturefarm” is my attempt at an open journal, to keep track of ideas for the book and for teaching as they arise, and to air them out semi-publicly.
And the name? Well, it’s Iowa, right? And we’re growing architects?
