Non Arkaraprasertkul has been appointed Distinguished (Visiting) Gibbons Professor of Architecture at the University of South Florida (USF) for the spring semester of 2013 to co-teach a travel urban design studio and co-direct an urban design project with Professor Jan Wampler, USF Markborough Endowed Professor and Professor of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
First of its kind, the goal of the studio is to design a city, a community, an urban spatiality, on two water reservoirs in the southeast of Thailand near the Gulf of Thailand in Rayong Province. With the firm belief of both professors that architecture and anthropology are unique fields of study with synergetic potential, this studio is directed toward the understanding of the local lifestyle and the vision for the future. Working closely with the local planners, officials, and local residents, the studio hopes to present the design projects by the beginning of June. The result will be published in a book form.
