James Eckler

Advisor

Who

James Eckler is the Director of the Marywood University School of Architecture.  He is an internationally recognized author having published and presented his research extensively; including two books and numerous papers.

Over the course of his career, he has sought to find the intersections between architecture, urban space-making, and design pedagogies.  Specifically, he is currently interested in the idea of interiority as it exists at the scale of the city.  His agenda asks if we can conceptualize shared urban spaces as interior spaces?  If so, the roles an individual piece of architecture plays in defining urban interiority is subject to critical scrutiny.  He has written and presented these ideas extensively.  This body of research is ongoing and transitioning into a more mature trajectory as he looks at crafting studios and seminars that address these notions with students.  Essential to the transition of research into pedagogy is the potential for the student/designer to speculate urban futures and conceive of architecture as formative to its context.
