Steve Davidson

Assistant Professor Steve Davidson has a strong history and background in Architecture, both in the classroom and the professional world. Professor Davidson graduated with a Bachelor in Interior Architecture from Kansas State University then continued his education at the University of Kansas where he received his Master of Architecture.

Prior to joining the faculty at K-State, his 20 years of professional experience included work such as aircraft interior fabrication and design, custom furniture making, point of purchase and trade show design, prototyping and production for museum exhibit designs and fabrication and installation in both private and public sectors. In 1997, he was invited back to K-State to teach the furniture design workshop.

In all of the experiences, he has endeavored to retain a hands-on, making aspect to his involvement. The measure of a designer comes through the ability to manifest his or her ideas and through the iterative act of making continues to build the body of knowledge. That philosophical approach instilled in him through his undergraduate career and continues to influence him. “I have been an assistant professor in IAPD for the past seventeen years and find the relevance as valuable today as when I first experienced it.”
