Ph.D., AIA, LEED AP, Associate Professor of Architecture
Christopher Koziol is a licensed architect and a committed urbanist. He joined the faculty of the University of Colorado's Department of Architecture as an Associate Professor in fall 2007, where he specializes in issues related to the design of cities, existing buildings and sites, and public policies and technologies that impact the use of the extant city. He is currently director of Master of Science in Historic Preservation (MSHP) degree program.
Chris's recent research has focused on developing a critical perspective on the social construction of historic preservation, using this lens to understand and improve the preservation decision process. This interest has led him to pursue funded research on specific topics ranging from technical studies into material properties to issues of public participation in conservation treatment planning. He is currently working on a book Heritage on the Make: Assembling Chicago's Architectural Past (and Future) [Ashgate Publishing: forthcoming].
