Michael Cadwell is the Walter H. Kidd Professor of Architecture and the Director of the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture. He received his BA in English Literature with Honors from Williams College and his master of architecture from Yale University. Before coming to The Ohio State University, Cadwell taught at the Parsons School of Design, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Williams College. He also practiced in the offices of Turner Brooks, Wiemann and Lamphere, and Cesar Pelli. Before serving as Director of the School, Cadwell was Architecture Section Head (1997-2004). Cadwell designed and built a series of small wood buildings on remote New England sites and public sculpture parks, which were collected as Pamphlet Architecture 17 by Princeton Architectural Press and published extensively in architectural journals. Cadwell’s small buildings received design awards from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and the New York Architectural League and he has been a fellow at the Woodstock Arts Colony, the McDowell Arts Colony, and the American Academy in Rome. Cadwell also practices with Jane Murphy, focusing on residential commissions that have won two AIA awards. In teaching and practice, Cadwell explores construction as a transformative cultural act. Cadwell’s book Strange Details (MIT Press) articulates this interest through essays on canonic works of 20th century architecture. More recently, his writing on contemporary architecture has appeared in Hunch, Harvard Design Magazine, Log, and Domus.
