Professor Marshall Arne joined the faculty at the Hammons School of Architecture full time in 2001. Prior to this, for 18 years in practice, he held design leadership roles with architectural firms in the San Francisco bay area, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Kansas City, Missouri. He continues to practice as principal of Art & Architecture LLC as well as participating in national and international architectural design competitions. In 1993, Professor Arne was awarded the prestigious Plym Traveling Fellowship from the University of Illinois resulting in extended residence in Paris, France studying the dynamic of contemporary modern architecture in the historic urban fabric of this great city. In 2008-9, Professor Arne took sabbatical leave to return to Paris, as well as Barcelona Spain, to investigate the relationship between culture and design as genesis for architectural conceptualization.
In his tenure at Drury, Marshall has concentrated on courses in digital design media, traditional presentation techniques, architectural practice, professional communication and architectural study abroad programs, leading trips to Paris and southern France, Berlin, Barcelona and northern Spain, Florence and Tuscany, Venice, Athens and the Peloponnese. These study abroad experiences, led on behalf of Drury as well as the University of Illinois, Versailles program, have helped him refine skills in architectural sketching and develop a keen understanding of the European architectural landscape.
Since 2004, Professor Arne has led the HSA Spring Break Internship Program. This innovative program has placed Drury students in prestigious architectural firms located in the US, Tokyo, Australia, Barcelona and Zurich.
