Speaking to the challenges inherent in design education today, Dean Richard Sommer will deliver his inaugural lecture on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 6:30 pm in Room 103 of 230 College Street.
Prior to his appointment as Dean of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design in July 2009, Richard Sommer was, for more than a decade, Associate Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, where he also served as the Director of the School’s Urban Design Programs. Sommer’s design practice, research and writing take the complex physical geography, culture, politics and historiography of the contemporary city as a starting point for a speculative approach to architecture and urbanism.
