Tricia Stuth, AIA is an associate professor at the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design, a Co-Founder and Partner in the firm curb, and a Co-Founder and Principal in the architectural collaborative Applied Research. Ms. Stuth’s focus on the role of context in design underpins her work in each of these positions. Her dedication to understanding design as intricately influenced by culture and technology, politics and place have allowed her to make significant contributions to the field, including several articles published in the Journal of Architectural Education (JAE). She holds BS and MArch degrees from the UW – Milwaukee and practiced with the Miller|Hull Partnership, Kieran Timberlake Associates and Ellis-Miller Architects. While with these firms, she was a designer on numerous projects including the Island Residence on Bainbridge Island, WA; Sidwell Friends Middle School in Washington DC, AIA COTE Top Ten Green Award winner; the Cambridge Federation of Women’s Institutes, UK RIBA finalist for the Sterling Prize. In 2010, the AIA recognized Ms. Stuth with the Young Architects Award, and the work of her firm curb is recognized by the AIA and RIBA and is exhibited and published nationally and internationally.

Ms. Stuth was one of only three architecture faculty awarded the ACSA/AIAS New Faculty Teaching Award (2009-2010) for demonstrated teaching excellence in the formative years of her teaching career. She was also awarded the ACSA|AIA Housing Design Education Award (2008) for Tools of Engagement, a studio that examined the technical, social, regulatory and aesthetic issues associated with off-site fabrication of urban in-fill housing for post-war neighborhoods. The studio established a relationship with Clayton Homes – a leading producer of manufactured/modular homes – and a pedagogical model for industry, community, and academic partnership. Currently, Ms. Stuth and Professor Robert French are leading an interdisciplinary team of students in the design of a New Norris House, the outcome of which is the manufacture of a prototypical home for the New Deal Town of Norris – one of the nation’s first planned communities developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The New Norris House is funded in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Winner of the P3: People, Prosperity, Planet Annual Student Design Competition (2009).
