Mr. McInturf received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Miami University of Ohio in 1985, and a Master’s of Architecture from the University of Illinois @ Chicago in 1988. While in Chicago, he worked for Skidmore Owings and Merrill, participating in the design of large scale projects including Rowe’s Wharf in Boston and Bishopgate in London.
In 1988 he joined Eisenman Architects where he was directly involved in the design, development and construction administration for high profile projects worldwide. During the six years McInturf worked with Mr. Eisenman, he became an associate partner, was a Venice Biennale representative, and participated extensively in the design and execution of the award-winning Wexner Center for the Visual Arts in Columbus, Ohio.
McInturf's role of principal designer for the University of Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for Design and Art required his relocation to Cincinnati in 1994 to oversee the 2.5 year construction process. The project was displayed prominently in the 1991 Venice Bienalle International Exhibition, and won the 1994 National Progressive Architecture Award. Following the completion of Aronoff Center, he joined the faculty at the University of Cincinnati School of Architecture and Interior Design and started his own practice.
Today, McInturf plays an integral role beyond SAID/DAAP as an active member of the University's Design Review Committee as they oversee their extensive 20 year building program and Campus Master Plan.
