Greg Snyder is an Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Programs for the School of Architecture. Snyder teaches in both the undergraduate program and the graduate program of the SoA. His research interests are in issues that arise out of acts of making and construction, and the phenomena and meaning that accrue in and around these acts. The current set of projects that he is pursuing these research interests through is Case Goods – an investigation of furnishings as expandable environments, and The Metal Building in the Expanded Field – a body of work that looks to develop alternative ways to employ standardized building systems and catalogue componentry. His class First Year for Life is a recurring seminar elective that examines relationships between one’s architectural education and the practice of everyday life.
