Garth Rockcastle


Garth Rockcastle is dean of the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Maryland, where he has initiated efforts to expand and cross-connect the curricular offerings of the School and to diversify and deepen its human and digital resources.

Rockcastle is known for his architectural creativity and expertise. In 1981, he co-founded the architectural firm of Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle, LTD, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The most recent of his many accomplishments is the new University of Minnesota Regis Center for Art. Rockcastle has written on diverse topics and edited collections of critical essays on architecture, especially on themes involving ethical and theoretical issues. His overarching concerns address the how and why we practice and teach in the ways we do, and how (or why) we might do otherwise. He regularly crosses and links his concerns between professional practice and academic perspectives.
