Dr Sam Ridgway
Sam Ridgway is an Associate Professor in the School of Architecture & Built Environment. He has a B. Arch. (Hons) and a M. Arch. (research) from The University of Adelaide and a PhD from The University of Sydney. He is a specialist in architectural construction and design, with over 25 years of experience in research, teaching and architectural practice. He has taught and delivered lectures nationally and internationally including at the Universities of Sydney, Edinburgh, and Hong Kong, at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center (Virginia Tech) and Carleton University in Ottawa.
He has held senior leadership positions including Acting Head of School (2010 – 2011), Coordinator of the Master of Architecture (2008 – 2015), and member of the School’s Executive Committee (2013 – 2015). Sam has been a registered architect in South Australia since 1988.
Sam’s research focuses on the fundamentals of architectural design theory, on the way designs are conceived and buildings are constructed to enhance their occupants’ well-being. Key areas of interest include architectural representation, and the relationship between buildings and the human body. This builds on his earlier research in the field of the history, theory, practice and pedagogy of architectural construction. In 2015 he published a book in which he explored the relationship between the theory, drawings and buildings of the remarkable architectural teacher, theorist and architect, Marco Frascari.
