Experience and Qualifications:
Stephen Wischer is an Associate Professor of Architecture at North Dakota State University where his teaching of history/theory seminars and design studios emphasize interdisciplinary relationships between art, architecture, writing, and philosophy. Professor Wischer’s artwork and architectural investigation involve intensive process-based exploration, which have been exhibited in both Canada and the United States. His doctoral research in the History and Theory of Architecture at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, under the supervision of Dr. Alberto Pérez-Gómez, explores hermeneutic readings of artistic creation and historical texts in relation to architectural praxis. He has addressed the ethical implications of these approaches to the theory and practice of contemporary architecture by presenting at numerous international conferences.
