This is my third class with Jack, and he has yet to disappoint me. He's very knowledgeable and makes each of his 3 classes distinct. It's a shame he's retiring, as it's clear that he cares a lot for his students. He's even willing to help with projects for other classes. A prior understanding of architectural terminology is recommended.

Not very concise in his lectures. Extremely difficult to pick out what's important. Once complained to the class "this is an academic discipline." That may be so, but he is teaching at a working class school, not the ivy league, and most of us are taking at least four other classes. He's nice but also tough considering the workload.

I loved this class. The material is pretty easy if you already know some architectural terms - then it's just a matter of applying them to the right structures. He's a great professor, and I'd definitely recommend him.

well, having one of the top experts on Frank Lloyd Wright in the country as a teacher has its perks, you know he has to be a great teacher when ub stole him from an ivy league school by making him head curator of the Darwin martin house, He is a great teacher, as long as you show up to class and pay attention you should be able to get an B easy

Damn you quinan! Give me that A! The man does know everything. Fun Fact: his prep school he went to has an endowment twice that of UB... Overall: good class, usually enjoyable. Not that easy unless you want to try.

Not too bad overall. Speaks clear english. Somewhat boring. He can be amusing. Mandatory attendance with surprise quizzes. Easy workload. Probably a 3 out of 5 overall.

Love this guy, def my favorite teacher at UB! He's very spunky and funny, kindof awkward but in a good way. Really interesting classes and he's exremely passionate about Architecture, he knows EVERYTHING. Pretty hard so def read the books/articles he assigns and study for tests. Great Professor.
