Dave Maynard has been teaching architecture in the undergraduate program at CCA since the Fall of 2009: Studio 1, VDM1, Materials and Methods, and Advanced Technological Systems. Prior to joining CCA, he taught for 10 years at Woodbury University in Burbank: primarily the House and Housing design studio, the Comprehensive Building Design studio, and the Sustainable Urban Design / Foreign Travel (Latin America) studio, which he continues to teach each summer. He has also taught studios or seminars at Otis, PCC, UNLV, SCI-Arc, and UCA in San Salvador, and has lectured at a number of universities both in the USA and in Latin America.
Dave received his MArch degree from SCI-Arc in 1995, where he received the Director's Award for service to the school. He then co-founded HEDGE design collective, a collaborative and multi-disciplinary design studio. Each of the independent designers within HEDGE was trained in architecture, but often diversified into other disciplines, including clothing design, graphic and web design, floral design, and landscape architecture. His practice within HEDGE, Dave Maynard Architecture, designed, engineered, and oversaw construction of several residential and small commercial projects, each in collaboration with another independent designer. The work has been published in Praxis, Interior Design, Metropolis, and other periodicals. Prior to HEDGE, Dave had worked for Grassi Design Group in Boston and Key West, CalChart Constructors in the SF Bay area, and Gordon Polon Engineers in Los Angeles. From 2006 - 2009 he was a project architect for Kuth Ranieri Architects in San Francisco, where he worked on several residential and speculative urban projects.
