Curatorial Practices: Two Upcoming Fall 2020 Preston Thomas Lectures, November 5 and 6

This semester's Preston H. Thomas Memorial Lectures combine with an elective seminar in the History of Architecture and Urban Development, taught by Assistant Professor Samia Henni. The series and seminar theme centers around various histories and interpretations of the world's major deserts—both hot and cold. Scholars, curators, artists, and architects are invited to discuss their unique perspective and a current research project in order to offer a multiplicity of readings of the desert. Together, the series aims to stage an intersectional understanding of the desert's spatial possibilities.

Who is Don Greenberg, and Why Is He Pixelated?

Throughout five decades of teaching and research, Greenberg has won many of the most prestigious computer graphics awards—most recently, the ACM SIGGRAPH 2020 Distinguished Educator Award—and 15 of his former students and postdocs have won Hollywood Technical Oscars for animation. But that's not the half of it, or even a "byte" of what Greenberg believes about the growth of computing power, its applications, and the skills architecture students will need to keep pace in the future.

A Message from our Dean

At AAP, we share a commitment to doing things we do not yet know we can do — trusting in processes of investigation and imagination. And though we are now dispersed at a time when we may feel we need each other most, I have complete confidence that we will continue to come together in new ways — to act on our most caring and creative instincts, in solidarity with one another across the country and the world… Read the Dean’s letter.
