Sarah Whiting of Rice University Named Educator of the Year by Architectural Record Magazine

Sarah Whiting, the William Watkin Professor of Architecture and dean of the School of Architecture at Rice University in Houston, Texas, has been selected to receive a Women in Architecture Design Leadership Award from Architectural Record magazine. Dr. Whiting will be honored as Educator of the Year at a reception in New York City on October 25.

“I’m thrilled to receive this recognition for doing what I love to do here at the Rice School of Architecture,” Whiting said. “I hope I’m a role model, not just for our female students but for all of our students, defined not by gender, not by race, not by age, and not by ethnicity, but by a common ambition to design a better future.”

Professor Whiting joined the faculty at Rice in 2010. She is a founding partner of WW Architecture.

A graduate of Yale University, Professor Whiting earned a master of architecture degree from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in architectural history, theory, and criticism from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
