Deborah Richards

Deborah Richards, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma, was recently named a Humanities Forum Fellow.

Dr. Richards’ project, “Surface Flux,” investigates the ways in which the physical environment can be understood and shaped through different philosophical perspectives. Three unique surfaces will be computationally designed and digitally fabricated as part of a final exhibit. The first surface will explore networks, the second will explore objects, and the third will explore the tension between the two, while also engaging the viewer as part of the built environment narrative. An April exhibition of “Surface Flux” is planned for Oklahoma City.
