NORTHFIELD, Vt. – The Norwich University School of Architecture + Art will welcome back graduate Joe Fisher as part of the NUSoA+A 2019-20 Lecture Series “High Tech / Light Touch.” 

Fisher, who earned a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies in 2010 and a Master of Architecture in 2011 from Norwich, will speak at 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16 in Chaplin Hall Gallery about his recent experiences in southeast Australia as a participant in the 2018 Glenn Murcutt Master Class and the integration of these lessons into his evolving private practice.


Joe Fisher

From 2010 to 2014, Fisher worked with Birdseye, an award-winning Richmond, Vermont, design/build firm where he completed his architectural internship and passed the architectural registration exams to earn his Vermont architecture license.

In late 2014, Fisher moved to Austin, Texas, became licensed there, and started Joe Fisher Archtiect, his own architectural practice focused on small-footprint design. In 2018, he became a Certified Passive House Consultant, completing a rigorous program for design and certification of super high-performance, net-zero-ready buildings.

His firm has shaped itself around a decentralized office model, with a flexible design team composed entirely of Norwich University graduates who are located around the country and communicate with one another virtually. This innovative type of professional practice, enabled by the integration of new technologies and business approaches, has let Fisher’s firm take on projects in Vermont, Colorado, and Texas.

The Norwich University School of Architecture + Art’s Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The series is supported by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, a philanthropic organization that supports cancer research, education, volunteerism and other charitable endeavors.
