Joe's teaching and practice interests are focused on the intersection of current practice, evolving graphic technology (2d drawing, 3d rendering, and data-based modeling programs like GIS or BIM), the implementation process of built work, and cost/material/performance implications of design. This is important because professional practice is evolving rapidly in response to emerging technologies in materials, computer applications, and revised cost models. This has affected the structure of offices, how projects are completed, the method they are delivered, and the business models of practice. I plan to continue to practice and bring those experiences into my teaching and academic work.
