Adjunct Assistant Professor

Tommy Schaperkotter is an architect, builder, and educator devoted to transdisciplinary exploration of material cultures, construction ecologies, and interdependencies between built and non-built environments. He works at the confluence of climate urgency, labor equity, and design-build processes. His projects include housing in the United States, rural reforestation in Haiti, earthen construction in Austria, and architectural advocacy for displaced communities in Bangladesh.

Schaperkotter received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia and holds a Master in Architecture with Distinction from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, where he was a co-recipient of the Plimpton-Poorvu Design Prize and the AIA / ACSA Committee on the Environment Top Ten Students Award.
