Nancy Clark is founder and Director of Global Lab research consortium, a cross-disciplinary research initiative with the University of Florida focused on the study of emergent global trajectories in architectural practice, building technology, and urban policy making. She is also principal of an architectural practice and has exhibited, published and received design awards for her building projects throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Clark is currently the Assistant Director in charge of Graduate Programs at the University Of Florida School Of Architecture and serves as the Coordinator of the G|SoA Ivan Smith Endowment, a program dedicated to the advancement of graduate education. Under her leadership, this program has provided funding for more than twenty distinguished scholars worldwide in support of their research with the graduate students at UF’s School of Architecture. She teaches in the graduate and undergraduate design studio as well as lecture and seminar courses intended to advance research of innovative urban development, sustainable environments, and alternative modes of practice and design.
Clark’s architectural work includes a range of projects from residential, commercial and institutional to experimental theatre design. She has received over eight American Institute of Architecture (AIA) awards in the past ten years and her work has been published in several journals such as Florida Inside Out, the Florida-Caribbean Magazine, and SITES. She has lectured and exhibited her work and research extensively including Rome, Vienna, Rio de Janeiro, Toronto, Seattle, Miami, Orlando and Sarasota.
Clark’s ongoing research with Global Lab seeks to engage the discipline of architecture by connecting designers, programmers, curators and artists in order to explore innovative and diverse forms of research and analysis as well as new paradigms for practice and the built environment. She collaborates with visitors in studios, workshops and forums held in Gainesville with the intent of bringing a global focus to local and regional design issues. The program supports technology workshops and master classes that explore recent advances in research technologies and provide opportunities for students, faculty and professions to work with prominent figures in a variety of disciplines including sustainability, environmental technology, and digital environments.
