IARC has gained two new professors this semester; Jonathon Anderson joins us from SCAD and brings some wonderful design and digital expertise to the table. We are excited to have him and welcome him to the department! To learn a little more about Jonathon, read on.
Orignally from Chicago, IL, Jonathon studied as an undergrad at Southern Illinois University where he received his bachelors degree in architecture. After graduating, he worked in the field as the Director of Fields Operations for high-end residential projects until he decided to continue his education at Savannah College of Art and Design. He received his Master of Fine Arts in furniture design. Jonathon has wanted to teach since he was an undergraduate student and sees it as a great challenge as well as a chance to influence the lives of future designers. He pursued his goal and joined the department after completing his degree as he saw IARc to be a great opportunity that offers an intriguing mix of interior design and architecture.
Jonathon believes that design is about playing and experimenting and that designers should be willing to play and appreciate the unexpected. He advocates for working through your concept without allowing limitations to halt your design. Jonathon has learned that design is about collaboration – each designer has something to bring to the table, and we are excited to see what he will bring to IARc!
