The Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture has appointed Russell Gentry as the new director of the Master of Science (M.S.) in Architecture program.
In addition to his new role as director of the M.S. in Architecture program, Gentry will continue his work as associate professor of architecture and civil engineering. Gentry is a licensed structural engineer and an expert in the design, modeling, and testing of complex structures – having recently completed a U.S. Patent for a photovoltaic mounting and racking system using composite materials. He is also the principal investigator on a Department of Energy project to develop self-consolidating concrete for externally-reinforced concrete structures.
Gentry has served as the faculty advisory for the M.S. in Architecture digital design and fabrication concentration. Gentry can often be found in the Digital Fabrication Lab, teaching courses on masonry and fabrication. Gentry also co-teaches a course on environmental impacts and energy use in buildings, Green Construction, and an applied housing studio, Zero Energy Housing, with Georgia Tech colleagues Godfried Augenbroe and Michael Gamble. He is the author of “Building Systems, Controls, and Automation”, published in Design and Construction of High Performance Homes, Franca Trubiano, editor.
The M.S. in Architecture degree provides students holding professional degrees in architecture (B.Arch or M.Arch) or with equivalent degrees in allied fields of design or engineering with research‐based knowledge that is applicable to the advancement of professional practice. Designed to leverage the active research programs in the School of Architecture, the M.S. in Architecture program offers five concentrations, and each concentration is associated with a research facility or lab in the College of Design. Students can pursue concentrations in advanced production, building information and systems, design computation, design and health, and high performance buildings.
