Alan Plattus began teaching at Yale in 1986 after serving on the faculty of Princeton University for seven years. He is the current director of the School’s Ph.D. program and the Yale Urban Design Workshop and Center for Urban Design Research (YUDW), which he founded in 1992 and which undertakes research and design studies for communities throughout Connecticut and the metropolitan region. Current YUDW projects include planning for a Heritage Park along the Thames River between New London and Groton, Connecticut, and resiliency planning for Bridgeport and the Connecticut coast funded by HUD’s Rebuild by Design program. Plattus also directs the School’s China Studio, a collaboration between Tsinghua University in Beijing and the Yale School of Architecture, and recently led a Yale and international team to develop plans for a Peace Park along the Jordan River on the Israeli-Jordanian border. He has served on the boards of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, the National Architectural Accrediting Board, the Journal of Architectural Education, and Architectural Research Quarterly, as well as the Connecticut Main Street Center and the New Haven Preservation Trust.
