Professor Rizzuto’s Ph.D. explored the relationship between philosophy and architecture. Examining three distinct moments in the history of western philosophy, the work traces the impact of their epistemological structures on the development of western architectural theory, resulting in three distinct approaches to tectonics; Classical Tectonics, Rational Tectonics and Poetic Tectonics.

He is also interested in urban theory and design and has been actively involved in planning and zoning in the City of Atlanta for the past five years, chairing the Midtown Land Use Committee and serving on the Development Review Committee for SPI-16 and 17.
