My Statement

Architectural history education should stimulate the imagination, sharpen visual perception, and improve analytical skills by exposing the students to a broad spectrum of architectural ideas. It should include the indigenous architectures of the world to learn how architects (whether their names are known or not) have utilized principles of nature as a starting point for their work and have drawn upon nature's energies to heat and cool their structures. Many viewpoints must be presented, since anything taught as the only way is wrong. There should never be a last word on architecture.

Andrew Chandler, AIA has been teaching in higher education since 1989. He comes to CCSF from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette where he was the graduate program coordinator.

His private architectural practice has garnered local, state, and regional design awards from the American Institute of Architects.

He has significant interest in collaborative works and has joined with other professionals and students to design stages for such works as Stravinski's "L'histoire du Soldat" and an original collaboration between himself, a choreographer, a painter and a composer. In 1999, he directed an original architectural installation celebrating the defining moments of the last millennium which the gallery, The Artists' Allianace in Lafayette, LA, stated was "the new benchmark" for all future gallery events.

He is keenly interested in pedagogical design and is committed to bringing his experience in this arena to CCSF.

He also loves gravity and plywood.

My Statement

My primary interest lies in the cognitive aspects of design thinking, particularly as it relates to the development of each student's design process and voice. As an instructor, I try to provide guidance to this end by responding to the experiences, knowledge, skills, and behaviors of my students, composititely and individually; and then enabling each student to employ a set of heuristics that lead to a satisfactory (and even inspired) solution. It is the subjective nature of heuristic reasoning that captivates my interest.

My Statement

Teaching architecture and design for me incorporates the challenge of interweaving theory and practice in a balanced way. As a practitioner I value the collaborative nature of architecture and the teams I am involved in. As a researcher and teacher I focus on contemporary design theory and the role of architects or designers in a changing world of aesthetics and construction. My current work is evolving around interdisciplinary studies and architectural research that extends beyond the traditional definition of the field.

My Statement

In the area of education, I am extremely interested in how students use drawing as a design and presentation tool. I'm also interested in how students present their work and prepare their portfolios.

A lot of my time is spent at various volunteer endeavors. I have worked at projects from painting homeless shelters to feeding the homeless and needy. I find the volunteer experience to be extremely rewarding and beneficial to my own being.

My Pez dispenser collection is one of my principal diversions.

My Statement

I first started at City College of San Francisco in 1974 as a student. I had a general idea that I wanted to be a architect, but I had no real plan on how to turn this idea into a reality. City College, and the students I met there, gave me that opportunity. I returned to City college in 1981 as a part-time instructor. In my years at City college, I've taught courses in drafting, beginning design, and construction documents. My primary focus, however, has been in construction management. I enjoy the diversity, enthusiasm, and intelligence of the students at City College. I like getting to know the students in my classes, as well as learning their hopes and aspirations, and, in a small way, also helping them to achieve those goals.

Full-time instructor, CCSF, 2004-present

Professional Experience

Though I've sought to specialize in the field of Construction Management, I have been involved in all phases of the design and construction process. For over twelve years I was an Architect at ED2 International, a San Francisco Architectural firm. While there, I headed up construction administration on projects including a $30 million library for Sonoma State University, a number of research facilities for the University of California, and a number of school facilities here in San Francisco. I have also been a Project Manager on a number of projects, coordinating all of the design efforts of our firm as well as our consultants. Before that I spent over two years in the public sector working as a Project Manager for the San Francisco Housing Authority. While there, one of my projects included the construction of a new $30 million, 203 apartment, development and renovation of the Alemany housing development. Prior to that, I worked for one of the pioneering firms in the field of Construction Management, O'Brien Kreitzberg & Associates.

My Statement

I believe that successful architecture is a balanced synthesis of design, practice management, and technology (construction and materials) goals and constraints. I try to teach and inspire my students with practical, real life examples which they can relate to and will be exposed to in the design profession.

My Statement

I am interested in perception, that is, learning to see and seeing beyond the obvious. We all have the potential to do this. I often draw inspiration from the works of conceptual artists, land artists, light artists, and scientists. In the built environment, perception is inherently tied to the choice of materials and details. I am interested in material investigations at multiple scales, from accessory designs to full scale buildings.

My Statement

I consider it a priority to offer students the opportunity to find their own path and grow in their own way. This is accomplished by using project-based exercises, giving one-on-one support, guidance, encouragement to analyze, critique, exercise judgement and intuition, while concentrating on the process and exploring new ways to think and see one's work. This can also help build the foundation process for city college classes and it can also clarify the direction for career choices.
