Meet AIA Columbus' Architecture Awards jury from Philadelphia through a series of lectures by the jury members!

In this mini session we will meet jury member Jules Dingle, FAIA. Jules Dingle is a Principal and founding partner at DIGSAU, a Philadelphia-based studio with a broad view of architecture, how it is made, and who makes it. The firms work ranges from art installations to large institutional buildings. DIGSAU’s philosophy of practice is guided by a commitment to design excellence, experimentation, attentiveness to the needs of their clients, and a deep connection to material culture of the places where they work. Their approach builds enthusiasm in others for the creation of meaningful places that empower people to be more inspired, productive, and fulfilled. In a built environment where authenticity is increasingly scarce, their work focuses on Architecture’s capacity to communicate via its materials and explores innovative ways that the craft of building can connect people to the experience of place, history, and time. Founded in 2007, the office operates as an open studio, with a staff of thirty-five individuals from diverse backgrounds. Since its inception, the firm has been recognized with over fifty state and local AIA awards and in 2013 was named one of North America’s “Emerging Voices” by the Architectural League of New York. A tireless and imaginative designer, Jules brings a unique combination of skill and passion to everything he does. His work balances an interest in emerging technologies with a fondness for the expressive potency of chance, improvisation, and low-tech solutions that celebrate the act of making. He has taught design studios at Temple University, Drexel University, and the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Design, and has served as a guest critic and lecturer at numerous design schools. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame and a Masters of Architecture from University of California Berkeley. Jules has served on the AIA Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Boards of Directors. Jules was recognized with the Philadelphia Young Architect Award in 2012 and AIA Fellowship in 2018.
