The Company You Keep: Top Design Educators

While I was searching through DesignIntelligence’s website I stumbled upon their list of most admired architectural and design educators.  Clearly, studying under the top educators in your field will have an impact on your education.  Think of understanding the nuances of your art form, the perspective of professionals and the contacts for future jobs.  They are all critical to future career success.

I’ve listed a few of DI’s top design professors, but suggest you check out the listing to learn more about each one.  Many work in a variety of fields.  I’d recommend googling the professors and schools that seem most interesting to you.  Let me know what you find.
