Curriculm Vitae

Amanda Reeser Lawrence, Ph.D. received a doctorate in Architectural History and Theory from Harvard University, a Master of Architecture from Columbia University, and a B.A. Summa Cum Laude from Princeton University, with a major in Architectural History.

Lawrence is a founding co-editor of the award-winning journal, PRAXIS, the only non-commercial architectural publication of contemporary American architecture.

Lawrence’s research focuses on a close reading of architectural form—both contemporary and historical—with a particular interest in theorizing the role of influence.

Her current research focuses on the British architect James Stirling (1924-92), and her book James Stirling: Revisionary Modernist was published by Yale University Press in the fall of 2012. Her research has been funded by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and the Graduate Society at Harvard University.
