Chad Schwartz, AIA is a new Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture, having spent the last eight years practicing architecture in the Phoenix area and teaching in the Design School at Arizona State University.  He is licensed as a registered architect in both Arizona and Illinois and holds an NCARB certificate.  Professor Schwartz has taught design studio at multiple levels as well as professional practice and building construction and has co-taught courses in architectural history and structures.  His professional work includes single-family and multi-family housing, education facilities, libraries and other community projects, juvenile justice facilities, commercial and retail work, and Native American projects.  Professor Schwartz’s research interests include the integration of typical and a-typical building materials and full-scale design work in the studio environment, the ability of the detail to take the role of the generator of architectural design, the effects of materiality and detail on our perception of space, and the evolution of building construction courses in the teaching of architecture.  Above all, his primary belief in practicing architecture is that the architect should design for the place and those who will occupy that place.
