Professor Erich Connell



Erich Connell has had an inherent interest in solving problems from an early age. What started with building forts, redesigning a bicycle, and creating a behind-the-boat submarine matured into designing buildings, land plans, logos, and creating quality designed projects.

His dissertation topic is related to 'experiential learning' a critical component of the design process for architects.

Erich practiced for 10 years in the profession of Architecture before entering academia. He has worked with peers and colleagues that included Irving Phillips, Charles Moore, Ken Yeang, William Peña, Frank Welch, Rodney Hill, Manfred Sabatke, Franz-Joseph Schattner, and Sam Rashkin. He received his doctoral degree in Architecture from Texas A&M University in 1996.

Erich has lived abroad in Germany and Malaysia, and resided in 6 states in the U.S.

Living in Mississippi he appreciates the music, pace, food and the genuine people he has met along the way!
