Joel Towers Named Interim Dean of Parsons

joel towers.jpgNow that Tim Marshall has been kicked upstairs to serve a term as interim provost of The New School, Joel Towers has been appointed to fill the decanal post at Parsons The New School for Design, also on an interim basis. Towers, who came to The New School in 2004 to direct the program in Sustainable Design and Urban Ecology, has for the past two years led the formation of Parsons’ School of Design Strategies, which is developing new graduate programs in transdisciplinary design (our favorite kind!) and design management, as well as collaborating on university-wide initiatives in urban design and environmental studies. When he’s not blazing new curricular frontiers, Towers is a practicing architect, having co-founded the firm Sislian, Rothstein, and Towers (SR+T Architects) in 1992 with Karla Rothstein.
