Specific Area of Research: 
Ted's research is interdisciplinary, in a way that architects have always practised, relating building, community, culture, technology, and everyday life; and it combines the contemporary practice of design, the history of technology, and material culture. One concentration in vernacular building construction considers the impetus for innovation within conventional practices. Another concentration in community design involves working in teams with ocean and coastal managers, scientists, and community groups to combine expertise in areas of community networks, integrated resource management, and spatial planning.
