TAD is a journal of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and is also made possible through additional support from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Building Technology Educators Society (BTES). TAD is published by Taylor & Francis and select issue content can be viewed on their website,


TECHNOLOGY | ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN is a publication venue for building technology researchers who seek to articulate the value and relevancy of technology for architecture and design. TAD is committed to disseminating research and scholarship contextualized within disciplinary, cultural, and ethical frameworks. Through peer-reviewed and solicited content, TAD provides a forum for discussion and debate about the impact of technological forces on design and practice.

Caryn Brause AIA is Assistant Professor and Graduate Program Director at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Brause’s teaching and scholarship investigate critical skills for contemporary practice, both technological and interpersonal. For her work in this area, she has been recognized with an AIA/ACSA Practice + Leadership Award and an NCARB Award for the Integration of Practice and Education. Brause is author of The Designer’s Field Guide to Collaboration (Routledge 2017).

 Chris Ford AIA is the Hamamoto Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow and a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.  Chris is a design professional, design educator, and design researcher in the areas of both Architecture and Infrastructure design. He is interested in our imminent Urban Futures through the research and design of next-generation solutions for the built environment from a user-centered perspective.

 Chad Kraus is an Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Kansas and a licensed architect. He teaches architectural theory, architectural design studio, and the designbuild Dirt Works Studio. His scholarship concentrates on designbuild pedagogy and material research. Prior to teaching, Chad worked for Pritzker-prize laureate Shigeru Ban and studied architectural history and theory under Alberto Perez-Gomez at McGill University.

Scott Murray is an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research and teaching focus on the cultural significance of building-envelope technologies of the last 100 years. He is the author of the books Translucent Building Skins (Routledge) and Contemporary Curtain Wall Architecture (Princeton Architectural Press). He is also a licensed architect with a design practice based in Urbana, Illinois.

Clare Olsen is a licensed architect, published author and installation artist. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Brown University and a Masters of Architecture with distinction from the University of California Los Angeles. Olsen’s research has focused on interdisciplinarity, computation, ceramics and design pedagogy. Her book, Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering, co-authored with engineer Sinead Mac Namara (Routledge, 2014) has received international acclaim.

Jeana Ripple is an architect, computer scientist, founding principal of Ripple Architecture Studio, and Director of the Master of Architecture Program at the University of Virginia. Her research investigates materials as performance systems, at the scales of building systems, material manufacturing, and by examining city-wide impacts of material codes. She is a founding editor of TAD, Journal of Technology | Architecture + Design. 

Marci S. Uihlein designed public and private building projects while at Arup in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  As an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she published several articles looking at structural engineering practice and architecture. She has received over $100,000 in grants and awards. Currently, she serves president of the Building Technology Educators’ Society, a College Fine & Applied Arts Design Research Fellow, and a member of ACSA’s Research & Scholarship Committee.

Julian (Jialiang) Wang is an Assistant Professor in Architecture and Architectural Engineering at the University of Cincinnati. He receives Ph.D. in Architecture from Texas A&M University and Dr. Eng. in Building Science from Tianjin University. Before joining UC, Wang worked at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Missouri S&T, and Tsinghua University. Supported by NSF, EPA, AIA, and NIST, his research projects focus on interdisciplinary applications of building science to sustainable, healthy, and interactive building environment.

Andrzej Zarzycki is an associate professor at the College of Architecture and Design in the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), teaching a broad range of building technology, interactivity and digital media courses. His research focuses on interactive and adaptive designs integrating embedded systems with distributed sensing. He is a winner of SHIFTboston Competition and a co-founder of a design initiative focusing on innovative adaptations of infrastructure into contemporary public spaces.
