Bartlomiej K. Sapeta AIA, NCARB

Associate Professor
Sustainable Product Design and Architecture
TDS Center 222 • M/S 1901

I am a broadly experienced architect with passion for teaching, eye for good design and sound detailing, and practical knowledge of sustainability. Over the last decade and a half, I worked with numerous boards, building committees and private clients primarily on Civic and Community type projects. I am a strong believer in collaboration and integrated systems approach to solving design challenges. Practicing those beliefs led to multiple projects recognized by clients and various peer organizations.

Currently, I serve as an Associate Professor of Architecture at Keene State College in New Hampshire, teaching sustainable design studios, digital imaging and commercial construction courses.

My knowledge is best utilized in environments that allow for broad exploration and experiential learning rooted in Buckminster Fuller’s synergetic design approach and supported by BIM technology. I strongly believe in individualism and independent thinking as the ultimate outcome of education.

During my architectural journey spanning almost a quarter of a century, I acquired knowledge and skills, experienced personal growth, relied on my intuition when making choices and tested alternatives with logical reasoning. My approach to education and architecture in part reflects the adaptive reuse design model: it is built on strong foundations but flexible to adapt to new and unexpected situations.
