The Pratt Institute School of Architecture has named veteran architect and educator Stephen Slaughter as its new undergraduate chair in architecture. He will take office on July 1, 2022.

Slaughter began his career at Morphosis Architects, founded by Thom Mayne. As a first-generation student, he earned both his Masters of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The Ohio State University. His portfolio includes collaborations with practices around the world involving retail boutiques, residences, restaurants and large-scale institutional projects.

A lifelong educator, he was previously an associate professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning and has held teaching appointments at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, at Woodbury University, University of Houston, and University of California, Los Angeles.

“I am excited to take on this role at Pratt and look forward to engaging with the community to advance critical conversations about inclusivity in architecture and design,” Slaughter said. “Architecture is for everyone and by training the next generation of architects, I hope to instill that idea. The exuberance, joy and beauty of design is what matters most to me, and that can be for everyone.
