These positions within the academic realm produce a fantastic blend of practice, research and design influence and traditionally within a tight time frame. Fellow Fellows sits down with these fellows and attempts to understand what these positions offer to both themselves and the discipline at large. <em>Fellow Fellows</em> is about bringing attention and inquiry to an otherwise maddening pace of refreshed academics while giving a broad view of the exceptional and breakthrough work being done in-between the newly minted graduate and the licensed associate.&nbsp;</p> <p>This week we talk to <a href="https://archinect.com/zachary-tate-porter" target="_blank">Zachary Tate Porter</a>. He is a historian, educator, and designer based in <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/1322/los-angeles" target="_blank">Los Angeles</a>.
