Mon, 11/25/2013

LAWRENCE — America’s Best Architecture & Design Schools recently named Paola Sanguinetti, associate professor and chair of the Department of Architecture, one of its 30 most admired educators for 2014.

The Best Architecture & Design Schools survey is one of several DesignIntelligence reports published by Atlanta-based Greenway Communications. The company specializes in topics relevant to the architecture and building design professions.

DesignIntelligence said its staff selected the education role models with input from thousands of design professionals, academic department heads and students. Educators and administrators from the disciplines of architecture, industrial design, interior design and landscape architecture are considered for inclusion.

Sanguinetti has taught in the Department of Architecture since 1997. She earned her doctorate in architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012.

She was named chair of the department last spring. Her objective as a teacher is to prepare architecture graduates for the challenges they will face in architectural practice by emphasizing sustainable design strategies, energy efficiency and proficiency in the use of digital modeling tools.
