Josef Stagg, Associate Professor

Josef Stagg holds a Doctorate of Architecture from the University of Michigan and a Master of Environmental Design degree from Yale University. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He teaches graduate and undergraduate design studios architectural technology courses, and advanced research/programming courses.

His ongoing research interest focuses on the application of digital and telecommunications tools to a variety of educational, design, planning, housing, and urban or inner city problems. such tools include computer animation, virtual reality, and graphic analysis of these problems. He has focused on using these tools to improve design education and has been funded by such organizations as the National Science Foundation to develop digital and telecommunications tools that community organizations and their residents can apply to community planning and housing. His current research involves developing a World Wide-resident urban housing data base.
