Ventulett Chairs

The Thomas W. Ventulett III Distinguished Chair in Architectural Design is made possible by a generous endowment created in honor of Georgia Tech alumnus Tom Ventulett, founding partner of tvsdesign in Atlanta. The intention of the Ventulett Chair is to engage an exceptional practitioner with a record of international leadership and excellence in architecture to teach in the School and to develop significant initiatives to heighten the critical importance of design in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, nationally and internationally.
