David Turturo believes the BAC is a rare institution where students can study the pulse and grind of the city first-hand. David leads students through design, history, and theory coursework with the city in mind. His focus is on trans-disciplinarity around design; specifically regarding social justice, the city in history, and modern theory. Outside of the classroom, David practices architecture in Cambridge, specializing in tall buildings, institutions, and the adaptive reuse of modern architecture.
At Syracuse University, Turturo received the Britton architecture thesis award for the design of a Hospice for Venice. At Harvard, David completed an advanced degree in architecture theory, with distinction. His graduate thesis continued a decade long search into the work of the American architect John Hejduk, surveying concepts from psychoanalysis, modern theology, transcendental literature, and critical theory.
