Hi, my name is Samuel Mortimer and I am an Architect working in Dallas, Texas.
I hold a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Tennessee. Following graduation, I helped lead a design-build project called the New Norris House. I was critical to overseeing the project’s total sustainability effort, systems integration, and receipt of a plethora of honors (2013 AIA Top-10 Green Award, 2013 ACSA Design-Build Award, 2014 ALSA National Honor Award for Research, etc). My research related to building science in the residential sector and academic design-build pedagogy has been presented and published internationally.
I am currently working at Good Fulton & Farrell Architects, but moonlight writing and thinking as part of a multi-genre collective known as the Planning Agency. My professional and academic interests focus on high performance design, intergrated project delivery and evaluation, the evolving relationship of “sustainable design” with market driven models, and the intersection of “wild” and urbanized areas.
Nice to meet you.
