For three decades, Turan Duda has educated young and future practitioners, as well as public school students and communities. Through his teaching, Mr. Duda shares a methodology that prepares students for the transition from academia to practice. At Yale’s School of Architecture, he taught architectural design and drawing to over 600 students. He has also served as a guest critic at North Carolina State University’s College of Design, Pratt Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Cooper Union. In 2010, Mr. Duda delivered the Design Process Convocation at the College of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The work of Duda/Paine Architects includes a diverse breadth including soaring international towers, engaging campus master plans and conceptual, futuristic cities. Duda/Paine Architects, led by the complimentary strengths of Turan Duda and Jeff Paine, has honed a design philosophy and practice that puts five recurring themes at its core: Shaping Experience, Creating Context, Skyline and Streetscape, The Public Room and Transformations. The firm’s idea-based approach to design will be highlighted through these themes in the upcoming publication, Individual to Collective, and will feature a Foreword by Cesar Pelli, FAIA.
