Phillip Ewing: Robert R. Taylor (1892) Fellow (2014)

Phillip Hampton Ewing, Jr. SMArch '15 talks about how he decided to become an architect, his interest in the field of Computation and what winning the Robert R. Taylor Fellowship has meant to his life, February 2014.

Phillip Ewing’s research interests intersect interactive architectural environments and healthcare innovation. His thesis project, “Interactive Phototherapy,” proposed solutions to leverage interior architectural lighting and embedded computing technologies to address problems associated with conventional phototherapy techniques. Throughout his time as an architecture student, Philip also organized and taught multiple workshops on computer-aided architectural design. At MIT, he organized and wrote much of the curriculum for a course on building information modeling (BIM) developed for the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Before coming to MIT, Phillip completed professional degrees in both architecture (B.Arch) and interior architecture (B.I.Arch) from Auburn University in May 2012. He is originally from Madison, AL.
