Professor Martin Bressani named next Director of McGill University’s School of Architecture

The School of Architecture at McGill University welcomes Professor Martin Bressani as its next Director for a three-year term, effective September 1, 2015 until August 31, 2018. This appointment follows a search conducted this past spring by the Search Advisory Committee chaired by Dean Jim Nicell.

As noted in the Dean’s recent announcement, Professor Bressani joined the School in 2001 as an Associate Professor, following approximately 14 years in the School of Architecture at Carleton University.  His area of expertise is the history of modern architecture, with an emphasis on France, and with a growing interest in developments in England from the Late Enlightenment to the end of the 19th century. He was recently promoted to the rank of Full Professor, in acknowledgement of his longstanding and considerable scholarly contributions and his international reputation in his field of study. He has a long track record of service to the School, including, most recently, a five-year appointment as Associate Director of the post-professional programs and Graduate Program Director.

The Dean also thanked Professor Annmarie Adams for her exceptional service and commitment as she begins a sabbatical leave, finishing her four-year term as Director.
