College of Architecture, Planning and Design


Message from the Department Head

I hope all have found their groove again after the break. The ride from now to May will be full of new adventures. Some highlights from this week include a commitment from Nathan Petty to join us in the fall on the tenure track. Please feel free to reach out to him as he plans his transition from the big apple to the little apple. Thanks to Peter for the great lecture on Wednesday and a premature thanks to Javier for his lecture this evening at the Nelson Atkins in KC.

Next week we have a visit from Serena Croce on Orvieto, the new building architect presentations on Thursday, our professional advisory board on Friday and Open House on Saturday. Please make sure to have your students straighten the studios and if there is empty display space outside your studio, put some sexy work up.

Also, proposals for fifth year studios are due. Teaching assignments for next year will follow shortly after a few more pieces of the puzzle are found.

Have a great weekend.
Matt Knox
