Professor Isham has been teaching university level interior design courses since the fall of 1994, where his teaching has focused on visualization skills and the beginning design student. His creative activities have produced award-wining designs in architecture 2D and 3D categories.
During the last five years he has been actively engaged in the construction of straw bale buildings. In 2009 lead a group of volunteer students in the construction of the McCrory Outdoor Classroom at McCrory Gardens, in Brookings, South Dakota. This is a 900 s.f. general purpose building will be the focus of a children’s garden area that will emphasize sustainable gardening practices. This is the first straw bale structure with a living roof in South Dakota. He also maintains the active design firm, Isham Design Resources..
