Giving Back to the Next Generation
Verdacity’s culture is rooted by a love for education and continual exploration of new skills and ways of thinking. Many of our team members are former or current instructors who regularly seek out opportunities to engage with new generations of architectural students, providing mentorship and insights into sustainability career paths.
This week, Design Director Huang Banh participated in a monumental review of student work from the University of New Mexico School of Architecture & Planning ARCH 302 class. A graduate of UNM SA+P class of 2016, he joined former graduates from the class of 1979 to present in providing critical, actionable feedback on student projects.
Huang has been an instructor at UNM SA+P since 2016 and is passionate about making a challenging curriculum ultimately rewarding for his students. "Educating and providing advice to these future professionals is critical to cultivating a creative and supportive environment in school and in the profession. These students will elaborate on the feedback provided to them for the remainder of their educational careers," he says.
In addition to his work with students, he is a member of AIA New Mexico’s Committee on the Environment (COTE), a graduate of the Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program (CKLDP) and the 2022-2023 co-chair of the CKLDP. We’re proud of Huang's commitment to our community and our industry.
