Mark West (speaking now strangley in the third person) has taught architecture at a variety of universities in the USA, Canada, Europe, Turkey and the UK since 1981. He is a builder, artist, father, husband, and pilgrim. In 2015 he left his position as Professor of Architecture at the University of Manitoba, where he founded the Centre for Architectural Structures and Technology (CAST), the first academic laboratory/studio dedicated to fabric formwork technology. Since then he has taught workshops and classes at a number of universities around the world, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and University of Washington in the USA, Aarhus University and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark, the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and MEF University in Turkey. When he is not doing that, he may be working in the newly opened Surviving Logic Atelier in Montreal, Canada, or living in a small cabin in Maine with his family.
