Kris Palagi, AIA is an associate professor at the School of Architecture within the College of Art & Design at Louisiana State University. He is a licensed architect in the states of Louisiana and Hawaii where he continues to practice. Kris’ interest in the methods, techniques, and sequences of construction frame his research in both design research and studio pedagogy. Currently, his creative endeavors build upon his recently published work, Fabric-lined Tensile Formwork for Cast-in-Place Concrete Walls (TAD v4.1). His scholarship in design teaching has been published at national and international conferences, led to four consecutive national ACSA Student Design Competition awards, and supported an interdisciplinary outreach initiative which secured an Our Town grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.
