The School of Architecture is pleased to announce that Lucy Maulsby will act as the Interim Director of the School of Architecture for the coming year. Maulsby is an Associate Professor of Architectural History at the school and her research focuses on architectural responses to modernization with a special emphasis on the relationships between architecture, urbanism, and politics in Italy. She is returning from sabbatical, during which she worked on her current book project on the legacy of fascism in postwar Italian architecture and was a visiting scholar at Harvard University. She is looking forward to working with the faculty and students to build on the school’s reputation for excellence in teaching, learning, and research and to share this work with the larger community. She anticipates a busy year!
We are grateful to Peter Wiederspahn for leading the School as Interim Director for the past year. Peter will continue to act as Graduate Director for our M.ARCH and MDES-SUEN programs.
