Abstract

This essay examines the value of faculty with doctorates in the humanities teaching in a professional architecture program. It also touches on my own experience with architecture, and the specific conditions (academic, geographic, cultural, political, and economic) outside of the traditional bounds of professional design education that shaped my understanding of the meaning of design. In short, it is an effort to detail why I believe architecture and design merit interdisciplinary scholarly examination and why design pedagogy in professional programs should embrace the insights gleaned at the intersection of multiple disciplines and practice.
