The list was compiled in a national survey of architecture faculty conducted by Architect magazine.
“It is always nice to be recognized by your colleagues, but this is a remarkable honor because of the caliber of the people named to this list,” Noble said.
Noble, who joined the USC faculty in 1991, teaches design, design computing and architectural technology. He is currently the chair of the new Ph.D. program in architecture at USC.
He campaigned for the creation of the doctoral program for more than eight years before it was established, and he was named chair of the program after completing a term as associate dean for the school in 2008. The doctoral program focuses on architectural technology and the building fa�ade.
“The USC School of Architecture has a long history of education and research in the building sciences, and the Ph.D. program is tailored to take advantage of this experience and the expertise of the faculty,” Noble said.
The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture selected Noble for its New Faculty Teaching Award in 1995. He was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 2003 and has served as faculty adviser to Alpha Rho Chi at USC since 1992.
