Hank Butitta

Adjunct/Visiting Faculty‎



Hank is a designer and fabricator with a Master of Architecture from the University of Minnesota. For his Master's thesis, he bought a school bus and converted it into a tiny living space. That experience helped focus his interest in "design through building", the concept that drives his workshops.

In addition to teaching BDA workshops, he designs and builds custom furniture from his wood shop in Plymouth, and also works part-time as an architectural intern. Hank specializes in digital fabrication, and strives to help students become more comfortable and familiar with material and structure through hands-on experience.
