Aaron Whelton is a registered architect in Oregon and an Associate Professor in Portland State University’s School of Architecture. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from the University of Kentucky and a Master of Architecture (M.Arch.II) from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Aaron’s creative research explores the capacity of parametric design to augment the experience of architecture and public space. This often results in the coding of architectural tectonics in public art installations. Current output can be found in public spaces around the U.S. including Denver, San Diego, San Jose, and Portland. More work will materialize soon in Riverdale Park, Chicago, and Boulder.

His teaching explores the influence of computation on architectural thinking. Course topics include computational design, parametric modeling, and digital fabrication.

Aaron serves on the Community Design Advisory Group (CDAG) for the upcoming Burnside Bridge project. He previously served as an architectural advisor to the David Campbell Memorial Association Board.
