David Hill, AIA, Interim Head of the North Carolina State University School of Architecture
Associate Professor of Architecture, North Carolina State University
Co-Director, Coastal Dynamics Design Lab

David Hill, AIA, is an Associate Professor of Architecture and Co-Director of the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab at the College of Design where he has taught full-time since 2007. While at NC State, David has led graduate and undergraduate design studios, digital representation courses, and seminars that focus on integrative digital simulation processes, architectural prototypes, and design strategies for coastal regions.

David is pursuing his interests in coastal dynamics, prototypes, and simulation through a series of trans-disciplinary research and design projects with the College of Engineering, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Landscape Architecture, and the UNC Coastal Studies Institute. He has presented papers and design projects related to his research at numerous ACSA, EDRA, and CELA conferences. He has received grants and won several awards for his design work, research, and teaching, including the AIA/ACSA Decade of Design Grant (2014), the ACSA Faculty Design Award (2009), the ACSA Housing Design Education Award (2013), an NCSU Strategic Research Initiatives Grant (2010), and the NCSU Libraries Faculty Award (2014). His entry—with Laura Garofalo and Nelson Tang—was a winner in the NYC OEM-sponsored “What if New York City…” post-disaster housing international design competition. More recently, David has designed award-winning projects and competition entries in collaboration with Tonic Design and In Situ Studio in Raleigh. 

Prior to joining the Architecture Faculty, David worked for Hashim Sarkis Studios in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee Architecture (PBC+L) in Raleigh, North Carolina. Several of his projects at PBC+L—including academic buildings and bus shelters for Wake Technical Community College, entry signage for RDU International Airport, and classroom buildings on NC State’s campus—have won various levels of AIA design awards.

David taught studios at the Boston Architectural College, Harvard University Graduate School of Design’s Career Discovery Program, and design studios as an adjunct professor at NC State before joining the faculty full time. He has served on awards juries for the Boston Society of Architects, AIA South Carolina and Georgia, and as a guest juror at the University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Texas – Austin, Tulane University, and UNC-Charlotte. He recently participated in the Visiting Teacher Programme at the Architectural Association in London.

David holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture from NC State University, and he earned a Master in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University where was awarded the Faculty of Architecture Design Award. 


Andrew Fox, ASLA, PLA, North Carolina State University Faculty Scholar
Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture
Co-Director Coastal Dynamics Design Lab

Andrew Fox is a professional landscape architect (PLA), Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture, and NC State University Faculty Scholar. Andrew is also the co-founder and co-director of the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab (CDDL), an interdisciplinary research and design initiative housed within the NC State College of Design that addresses critical ecological and community development challenges in coastal regions.

Andrew specializes in the development and management of high-performing public landscapes.  His teaching, research, and engagement efforts include the design, development, and study of urban landscapes, naturalized educational environments, low impact development strategies, and construction detailing and implementation.  These interests converge in the Landscape Architecture Design+Build Studio, an intensive, hands-on construction experience that Andrew teaches and directs.  Since he founded the studio in 2010, Design+Build projects have received numerous awards and have been published in multiple venues, including the PBS program, Quest: The Science of Sustainability.

Andrew currently serves as a Park Faculty Scholar for the Class of 2018, and is an elected member of the NC State Community Engaged Faculty Fellows, NC State Academy of Outstanding Teachers, and NC State Academy of Outstanding Faculty Engaged in Extension.  His recent research portfolio includes more than $500,000.00 in funded projects as either principal or co-principal Investigator.  In total, Andrew’s teaching, research, engagement, and professional practice activities have been recognized with more than 35 honors and awards.
