Aron Temkin, AIA, Professor
Dean of the College of Professional Schools
Professor Temkin is a licensed architect and a studio artist: in addition to buildings his design practice includes exhibit design, park design, and environmental graphics. His work has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally.
He received his first architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University, graduating with Honors, and completed his graduate studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He began his academic career teaching as a visiting professor at Carnegie Mellon before moving to south Florida to help Florida Atlantic University establish their new School of Architecture. He became Director of that program by the time he was 36 and taught there until August of 2010 when he joined the faculty of Norwich as the Dean of the School of Architecture and Art.
He is very committed to design research and the dissemination of new knowledge: he is in his third term on the board of directors of the Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC) and is the current President of the Association of Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA), the leading digital design research organization in North America.
