The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) has hired Greg Hall, AIA, to serve as the chair of its architecture program. The Paris Prize–winning architect has taught at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Hong Kong as well as SCAD, where he taught architecture for three years.
"The students, faculty and administration at SCAD are delighted that Dr. Hall will lead the university’s architecture program," said SCAD School of Building Arts dean Christian Sottile, AIA, in a release. "Dr. Hall’s extensive experience in teaching, research, administration and practice on national and international levels, along with his background in building collaborative partnerships within the industry, make him an ideal candidate to further the university’s mission to prepare students for creative careers."
Hall comes to SCAD from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, where he served as the director for education for five years. He has worked with such architects as Jean Nouvel, FAIA, and Renzo Piano, Hon. FAIA. Hall has taught design, construction technology, and other courses for students pursuing degrees in architecture, interior design, and historic preservation.
Hall received his bachelor's degree in architecture at the University of Texas at Austin and pursued a Ph.D. in architecture at the University of Hong Kong.
"I look forward to returning to SCAD," Hall says. "The university provides a dynamic context and environment for students to develop and prepare for careers. I am particularly excited about the opportunity for students to collaborate across disciplines and explore careers in a global context—aspects that are essential in today’s world."
