Lionel Devlieger was the spring 2011 Robertson Professor of Architecture at the University of Virginia.  He holds a masters degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering as well as a doctorate in Architecture from Ghent University. His dissertation, On the Birth of Artifact: Architecture, Alchemy and Power in Late-Renaissance Florence, focuses on the work of Benedetto Varchi .  His impressively diverse and active practice encompasses teaching, fabrication, theory, and design.  He is a founding partner of Rotor.    Rotor   “is a team of designers and theorists based in Brussels and sharing an interest in the flux of materials through industry and construction.  On a practical level, Rotor handles the conception and realization of design and architectural projects. On a theoretical level, Rotor develops critical positions on material resources, waste, and reuse strategies through research, publications, writings and conferences.” Recently, Rotor has designed the 2010 Belgian pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale and the Ex Limbo installation at the Fondazione Prada in Milan.

Lucia Phinney is a Distinguished Lecturer at the University of Virginia.  She holds masters degrees in Landscape Architecture and Architecture from the University.  Her research and teaching are directed at the creative territory between these two disciplines: the interaction between energy, material flows, infrastructure, and the potential for constructing weather.  These issues inform the work of Dripps+Phinney Studio with Robin Dripps.  Recent projects include Exoskeletal Urbanism at the Charles North Neighborhood | Baltimore;  Constructing Weather #15: The Leviathan Canopy; and Project Albemarle.
