Michael Piper / KSA LeFevre Fellow / Dub Studios

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
May 18, 2011 - 1:30pm

Michael Piper explores strategies of engaging mainstream architecture and city building in the U.S.  As a co-founder of DUB studios, an Architecture and Urban Design practice, Piper produces speculative urban projects that work at the scale of metropolitan regions through incremental changes to small-scale buildings and infrastructure. Concurrently, Piper’s DUB projects range from kitchen additions to office towers. He is the lead designer and project manager for two large mixed use commissions in Durham, NC that occupy 11 city blocks with 1,500,000 square feet of program.

Piper is the 2010 -11 LeFevre Fellow at Ohio State University and has previously taught at Syracuse and NYIT’s Abu Dhabi campus. He received a Masters in Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and a BS in Architecture from Georgia Tech. Before and during his university education he worked in the construction industry, an experience that drives his interest to negotiate lofty ideas with the pragmatics of implementation.


All lectures are free and open to the public.
Unless noted, all lectures will be held in the Gui Auditorium (KN 250) at 5:30 PM.
