Meet B.Arch Instructor:
Over the last several years, Jason Austin has instructed a range of architecture, landscape and urban design studios at both undergraduate and graduate levels at multiple universities. Reflecting upon his array of teaching experiences, he has instructed courses that align with his strong understanding of urban design, systems and network-thinking and built structures as they relate to the constructed landscape and the physical, social and cultural forces that shape our built environment. His experience coordinating foundation design studios as well as advanced upper-level studios has equipped him with a set of teaching skills with great range and depth and an ability to teach a diverse student body. Jason’s years of teaching experience and curriculum development at Drexel University instructing foundation studios, vertical studios and advising thesis students have provided him with an ample resource and exploration of teaching and working within a range of site types – from rural border conditions to blighted urban neighborhoods.
