Lawrence Tech Names New Dean of Architecture


Published:

Karl Daubmann

Karl Daubmann has been named dean of the College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University.

Daubmann currently is a professor of architecture and associate dean of post-professional degrees and technology engagement at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan, where he has taught for more than 15 years.

He is a registered architect with a record of projects in design technology, manufacturing, and multidisciplinary design. Daubmann is the recipient of the 2015 Founders Prize from the American Academy in Rome and has spent nearly a year in Italy investigating fabrication and assembly techniques of stone and concrete construction as advanced through robotic technologies.

His teaching encompasses digital media, robotic fabrication, construction, and multidisciplinary design. In addition to teaching, he established his own practice, DAUB (for Design Architecture, Urbanism, Building) Research Studio. An architect at the forefront of design and computation, his  practice focuses on expanding the relationship between design and technology, particularly the relationship between digital/robotic fabrication and building.

Daubmann also served as the vice president of design and creative director for Blu Homes, overseeing product development and project design from offices in Boston, San Francisco, and Ann Arbor. In this capacity he led a creative and multidisciplinary team that developed modern, green, prefab houses that fold for shipping across North America. Daubmann continues on the Blu Homes board of advisers.

From 2001-12 he was a partner of PLY Architecture and co-authored a broad range of work exploring design and digital fabrication with a local focus in Michigan. PLY’s awards for both built and speculative projects include the 2010 and 2011 Architect Magazine R+D Award for architectural research; a national AIA 2010 Small Project Practitioners Award; a commendation from Architectural Review; and seven Michigan AIA Awards.

Daubmann received his Bachelor of Architecture from Roger Williams University and a Master of Science in Architectural Studies from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
