Michael Iversen, Architect, Planner, Urban Ecologist, LEED AP

For the past 30 years, Michael Iversen has been actively engaged in academics (teaching, research) and practice (architecture, planning), with applied urban and campus sustainability being the common thread. The distinguishing benefit of this inter- and transdisciplinary career trajectory is that it combines the pedagogical and science-based approach of a teaching and research academic, with that of the real-world,problem solving-based approach of a practicing architect and urban planner.
