Dean Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter, FAIA was recently featured on The Midnight Charette Podcast by Marina Bourderonnet and school of architecture faculty member David Lee. Ingalill discussed alternatives to architectural certification as a way to rethink practice, technological shifts from top-down processes to open engagement, and introducing students to the potency of the profession through dynamic faculty work.
Recent alumnus Colin McCarville (MArch ’13) commented on the podcast, saying that,”I am very proud of being an alumnus of Woodbury and this interview reminded me of how special a place Woodbury is. Your approach to education was felt in my time in the graduate program and I know that the students Woodbury educates are helping to shape the profession in a very positive way. As an example, Abdulaziz “Aziz” Afandi, was part of one of the winning teams in the Middle East Solar Decathlon. I know that his time at Woodbury opened his eyes to a different way of working and a love for sustainability and building science. For myself, I have a love for civic engagement which has resulted in working with Habitat for Humanity and volunteering with community groups from my Design Build studio and work with AIAS.”
