Curriculum Vitae

Berrin Terim has joined the Clemson faculty in Spring 2016 and teaches history, theory and design. She is currently enrolled in the PhD program at VirginiaTech Washington Alexandria Architecture Center, where she has taught graduate level design studio and Topics in Design Methods course. During her masters, she has assisted in teaching design courses and visual communication classes. In 2010, she received College Creative Achievement Award from Penn State University.

Berrin’s research in architecture focuses on representation. Her early studies centered on cosmological perspectives, particularly exploring the dichotomy between perception and de-centralized point of view constructed by the intellect. Her dissertation work is focusing on anthropomorphism in architectural design, through the role of metonymy. Her research is exploring this framework through the narrative of the fifteenth century Florentine architect Il Filarete’s treatise on architecture. Berrin has presented her work in international conferences.
