Richard South is a 2014 Master of Science candidate in Advanced Architectural Design at Columbia University GSAPP. He studied architecture at the University of North Carolina where he received both a Bachelor of Art (2009) and a professional Bachelor of Architecture (2010). During the in-between years Richard apprenticed as an architectural designer alongside a collaborative group of three architects. Richard is interested in the current discourse surrounding parametricism: its decisive co-authoring by architects & engineers in a collaborative nature, and its sensible use within built or unbuilt work globally.
