Nichole Wiedemann is an Associate Professor of Architecture and the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs at School of Architecture. Since joining the faculty in 1997, she has taught design studios, drawing courses, theory seminars and study abroad programs.
In her teaching, research and practice, Wiedemann continues to focus on the essential elements of architecture -program, site, material and representation- as sites for continual investigation rather than simply givens in the architectural equation. In her research, she examines site as a cultural construct in Re-Collecting Rome: A Diachronic Guide to the City and Terrae Incognitae: A Cultural Cartography of Central Texas, an ongoing collaboration with Judith Birdsong. Following the devastation of New Orleans, with Jason Sowell, she began a body of design research examining the resiliency of the cities, which was exhibited in the 10th Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Wiedemann maintains a small independent practice with projects in Texas, Georgia and Florida. Her work, independent and collaborative, has been exhibited nationally and internationally as well published in the Journal of Architectural Education, On Site, Progressive Architecture and among others.
Wiedemann has taught at the University of Florida, Rhode Island School of Design, and MIT. She is the Meadows Foundation Centennial Fellow in Architecture, a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a previous John Williams Distinguished Professorship at the University of Arkansas. She received a Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida and a Master of Architecture from Princeton University.
