Friday Faculty Talks: Silvia Illia-Sheldahl

This spring, the School of Architecture is continuing its ongoing series to introduce our faculty to the student body with a focus on their research and/or design work. We hope that through this more informal engagement, students will learn more about the expertise that our faculty bring to the school and the opportunity that offers in terms of student’s own research interests.
