Randall Teal is interested in ambitious agendas that seek to fortify the planet, from circular economies, biomaterials and adaptive reuse, to the rethinking of architectural typologies and typical assemblies, to contemporary inclusive interpretations of dwelling, to the promotion of resilient building practices and novel digital processes. In guiding student work, Professor Teal encourages speculative, provocative, fictive, political, social, philosophical, architectural investigations and the use of architectural design and visualization to question our presumed reality and foster expansive visions of potential futures.
Bruce Haglund has been an architecture professor at the University of Idaho since 1982, involved in teaching, research, and continuing education. Professor Haglund’s current interests, which build on over thirty years of experience, focus on sustainable and regenerative architecture and urbanism and their effects on buildings and occupants. He encourages students to present their work at national and international conferences as well as to publish their work in conference proceedings and journals.
Hala Barakat is interested in the process of translating theoretical ideas into responsive architecture for people and culture. Professor Barakat believes in architecture and its ability to structure human interactions and shape future spaces. She hopes to continue using architecture to better understand our world and find overlaps between languages and cultures. In studio, her mission is to help each student to embrace their individuality and be aware of their own design and thinking process.
