Thomas Lee Turman

Tom worked for architecture and engineering firms in Colorado and San Francisco and has had a private practice in the Bay Area for over 30 years.  He has worked on projects as large as the Hyatt at Union Square and as small as a 340 square foot tea house.

He has taught at The A.A. in London, U.C. Berkeley, CCA and was department chair at the Architecture/ Engineering Dept. at Laney College in Oakland for 30 years, where Thomas was also awarded Teacher of the Year in 1999. His book “TEACHER-Stories to be Read and Graded by Friday” is a humorous and realistic look at teaching.

In the mid 60’s, under the direction of Buckminster Fuller, he helped start a school of architecture in Ghana, West Africa.  His book “WAWA- West Africa Wins Again” chronicles the trials and tribulations of such an undertaking.

His most recent project, a Tea House in Berkeley, won an award from Residential Design and Build Magazine.
