50 Years of Advancing Design, Technology, and Culture
During its 50-year history, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design has been an innovator in identifying what architects are taught. From the invention of 3D computer programs; to the integration of sustainability in a design curriculum; to the incorporation of large scale CNC robotics for the first time in a school of architecture in the world; the Department has critically defined the topics, curriculum, and knowledge necessary to keep its graduates relevant in a changing world. In the fall of 2014, A.UD shifts its focus to thinking about new school environments for architectural education. This mini-lecture series will bring a distinguished group of architects from around the world to Los Angeles to discuss architectural education building types. Associate Professor Heather Roberge will host Nader Tehrani's lecture and engage him in a discussion following his presentation.
