“A lot of relevant issues come together here [at TTU CoA], issues of cultural diversity, geographic and environmental issues, and of course, how we will design the built environment into the future. I’m excited to be here, to continue my practices in a research-oriented university, and to furthering essential discourses with my colleagues and beyond,” Epstein Jones said in a statement.
