What students are saying:

In regards to Master’s Project Interior Architecture Studio:

“I think the class was very enriching and Michael’s focused direction was very helpful. I think he tried to help each student according to the individual rigors of their projects.”

“I felt that the pace of the class was exceptional. The organizational structure of the class allowed me to work through the challenges and problems of a large-scale project in a way that made sense and all but eliminated confusion, stress, & panic. I actually enjoyed the process from beginning to end.”

General remarks about the instructor:

“Michael was very knowledgeable and a good teacher. He always provided us with good suggestions to help improve our projects.”

“I feel lucky to have had Michael as my instructor. He is very vested in the design development of his students and really wants our work to be at a professional level. Bravo Michael!”

“Michael had the ability to take an example or problem with one student’s work and turn it into a lesson that could be applied to all of our projects. He also had a sarcastic but no-nonsense quality that provided a fabulous (and often, much needed) comic relief for the class.”
