I feel privileged to teach architecture students at the Academy of Art University

San Francisco architect Geoff Gibson returns to teach ARH 150: Design Studio 1: Spatial Ordering and Hybrid Program this fall at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. This intensive, foundational design class teaches students fundamental drafting, model building, space and form design, and analysis of the built environment. All of these elements culminate in the design of a hybrid dwelling for two clients.

“I feel privileged to teach architecture students at the Academy of Art University,” said Geoff Gibson. “Not only will I get to inspire the next generation of architects, they will also inspire me.”

Gibson teaches the core skills he learned from his personal experiences, years of practice, and education at McGill University. Teaching at the Academy of Art University also keeps him connected with the architectural and design communities and in touch with the latest aesthetic and technical innovations and trends.
