      Dr. David Jason Gerber of the USC School of Architecture will discuss his recent projects.

      Gerber is an assistant professor of architecture at USC. He concurrently works as an executive at Gehry Technologies Inc., a leading Building Information Modeling consultancy and technology company. He has worked as an architect in the U.S., Europe and Asia, for the Steinberg Group, Moshe Safdie and Gehry Technologies, and as a project architect for Zaha Hadid. Gerber has held appointments at MIT’s Media Lab as a research fellow, as well as holding numerous teaching and research fellowships at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and serving as Harvard University’s Frederick Sheldon Fellow. He has been an instructor at the southern California Institute of Architecture, the Architectural Association’s Design Research Laboratory in London, Innsbruck University and the EPFL Switzerland, and has been a guest speaker and critic at Harvard and MIT.

      At Zaha Hadid Architects, Gerber worked on a number of the recently built projects, including the contemporary art museum in Cincinnati, the Phaeno Science Museum in Wolfsburg Germany, the Hoenheim terminus in Strasbourg. He was project architect and project manager for the One North Masterplan in Singapore.

      At SCI-Arc and USC, Gerber has taught courses in the applied sciences and studios in design, design computation, AEC technologies and fabrication, emphasizing associative parametric design strategies and Building Information Modeling as a means of design exploration and realization.

      Gerber’s doctoral work, “Parametric Practices: Models for Design Exploration in Architecture,” focuses on associative parametric design technology and its effect on design, theory, processes and contemporary practice. Publications of his design work and research have been included in Young Blood (AD, 2001), Corporate Fields (AA Publications, 2005) and, most recently, Interactive Cities (Hyx Publications, 2006). He is currently publishing a Harvard University book The Parametric Affect: Computation, Innovation and Models for Design Exploration in Contemporary Architectural Practice (2009).

      Gerber earned his B.Arch. at UC Berkeley, an M.Arch from the Architectural Association, and a Master of Design Studies and Doctorate in Design from Harvard GSD.

      Cost: Free and open to the public.
