UK Design's Gregory Luhan Elected to ACSA Board
LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 6, 2014) — Gregory Luhan, associate dean for research at the University of Kentucky College of Design and associate professor in the School of Architecture, has been elected as secretary for the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). Luhan will serve two years on the board beginning July 1, 2014.
As one of the four recently elected officers, Luhan will serve as the parliamentarian for the association in connection with the annual meeting, maintain the rules of the board of directors, review the bylaws, as well as other documents required by corporate law, and incorporate revisions and additions as required by the association and its board of directors.
Luhan had previously served a three-year term as the ACSA East Central regional director from 2010 to 2013. During that time he also served as the chair of the awards committee and chair of the director's committee.
Luhan's research has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Energy. His Design + Energy Initiative (DEI)-based research, whether at partial or full–scale, has produced a variety of award-winning “art to part” installation-based and residential-scaled projects that have been exhibited worldwide, including the first U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver-certified house in Kentucky, the Resonance House, and UK’s ninth place entry to the 2009 Solar Decathlon in Washington, D.C. As a professor of architecture and historic preservation, he teaches digital studio and seminars on design theory and computing.
Outside of his work at UK, Luhan currently serves on the board of directors for the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA), is editor-in-chief of the journal Architecture & Environment, and is on the editorial board of the International Journal of Architectural Computing.

The association's mission is to provide an inclusive forum to encourage dialogue, facilitate interdisciplinary research and scholarly and creative works, and articulate and foster public awareness of critical issues relevant to architectural education.
