David Theodore named new Director (Sept. 1)

 

Congratulations to Prof. David Theodore who has just been appointed as the next Director of the Peter Guo-hua Fu School of Architecture effective September 1, 2021. A graduate of McGill University and Harvard University, Professor Theodore is an outstanding choice, with a solid record of accomplishments in research, teaching, and service. He joined the School as a faculty member in 2014, and two years later was awarded a Canada Research Chair. Since that time he has received additional awards for teaching (2020) and service (2019). This year he has been in the news frequently for his role as co-curator of Canada’s contribution to the Venice Biennale, Impostor Cities. A big thank you to outgoing Director, Prof. Martin Bressani, for his dedicated leadership to the School and to the Faculty of Engineering over the past six years.

If you build it, it can contribute to a more sustainable future. That’s the aspiration behind the ambitious McGill project known as Building Architecture Research Node (BARN), which was awarded over $7.5 million through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Innovation Fund (IF) today. With funds from the Government of Quebec, BARN will receive more than $19 million in research support.
