Tim Culvahouse, FAIA and principal of CulvaHOUSE in Berkeley is an architect, designer, educator, writer, motivator and facilitator of architectural design, theory and philosophy. He is most recently the recipient of the AIA/SF’s Special Achievement Award for his contribution, leadership and vision as editor and writer for arcCA. 
Tim will present an overview of his current book project: Which Way is New Orleans
‘Buildings, like men and women, are not islands. They are caught up in complex relationships with the earth, with each other, with people’s needs and dreams. Some of these relationships are clearly visible, like the almost identical façades of a row of New Orleans shotgun houses. Others are harder to see.’

Tim has written for a wide range of journals, including 306090, ANY, Architect’s Newspaper, Art Papers, Design Book Review, Harvard Design Magazine, Modulus, Perspecta, Residential Architect, and World Architecture. He is the originator and editor of The Tennessee Valley Authority: Design and Persuasion, a study of the early design work of the TVA (NY: Princeton Architectural Press, 2007). Since 2000, he has edited arcCA (Architecture California), the quarterly journal of the AIA California Council.
He has served as head of the Department of Architecture, Rhode Island School of Design, associate dean for Design and Architectural Studies, California College of the Arts, and distinguished visiting professor at Tulane University, Carleton University in Ottawa, and UC Berkeley and is a member of the board of Public Architecture.
