Lane Duncan is an artist, architect and senior lecturer currently teaching experimental visual arts courses in the Innovation Design Collaborative at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia.  Over the years he has taught numerous graduate and undergraduate architectural design and theory courses exploring a wide range of aesthetic, social, technical, and environmental issues.  His latest drawing course with Dr. Jeannette Yen and Dr. Marc Weissburg examines cross-disciplinary learning concepts of art and science focusing on biologically inspired design.  In late 2013 he was a Visiting Artist and Scholar at the American Academy in Rome where he conducted research on Raphael Sanzio as both artist and architect.

His paintings have been exhibited in the Salon des Indépendants in Paris, group and solo shows at galleries in Atlanta, New Orleans, Paris, and New York. They are held in private, corporate, and institutional collections and have received numerous show and purchase awards.  Architectural projects have received AIA Design Awards for constructed work, unbuilt projects, and design theory.  His architectural drawings have been exhibited at the Chicago Architectural Foundation, the Interbuild Exposition in Birmingham, England, and various other national and regional venues. They have been published in Amazing Space, Metropolis, and numerous newspapers, periodicals, and academic journals.

Mr. Duncan also works in private practice as an architect specializing in critical regionalist design principles and has served as a design consultant for regional and national architectural firms, including Green Habitats, a sustainable building non-profit organization.
