Congratulations to Prof. Martin Bressani, appointed as the next Director of the School of Architecture for a three-year term starting on September 1. It has been a unique privilege serving as Director since summer 2011, an experience I will always treasure.
The summer is a relatively quiet time in the School of Architecture, although we have twelve students busy working on SURE projects and Masters students preparing their summer research topics.
Our Sheff Visiting Professor in the fall is Barcelona-based architect Toni Casamor, who will teach in the M1 studio. The Azrieli lecture of 2015-16 will be delivered by London architect Adam Caruso. Watch the website for the announcement of other plans for the academic year, coming soon.
As usual, summer travel and learning opportunities abound within the School. Thanks to the Wilfred Truman Shaver scholarship, a group of lucky third-year students traveled this summer to Germany and Scandinavia with Prof Nik Luka. Prof. Ricardo Castro is leading the ever-popular ARCH 379 Summer Course Abroad in Greece. Follow us on Instagram, mcgill_architecture, for information and images from these adventures and other news.
Accomplished alumni, generous donors, inspired visitors, productive professors, and talented students continue to make the School an inspiring place to study and teach architecture.
Prof. Annmarie Adams
