Graduate Architecture

Dubbeldam's interview was part of the 2019 Spring Dialogues, a seasonal talk show about the events in the world of design and architecture.

German Pallares was selected as one of two Andrew W. Mellon Doctoral Dissertation Fellows. The fellowships are administered by the Humanities, Urbanism, and Design Initiative (H+U+D).

His project, Tiny Tower, is one of two award recipients in the “One- and Two-Family Production Homes” category, one of 16 total recipients, and the only project in Pennsylvania.

On the occasion of her firm Archi-Tectonics’ exhibition at the Aedes Architectural Forum in Berlin, Miller Professor and Chair of Architecture Winka Dubbeldam talked to Design Weekly about her path to Penn, digital craft, and the demands on architecture.

Liyang Ding will continue his doctoral research on Hans Scharoun at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin during 2019-2020.

Faculty members Franca Trubiano and David Leatherbarrow assembled an international roster of scholars to assess the state of architectural theory in 2019, its purpose, and prospects.

This semester, Marilyn Jordan Taylor led a design studio that took a wide-angle view of the airport’s future—more capacity and more service, but hopefully better connections to Newark, and investments in struggling neighborhoods in the adjacent South Ward. Taylor’s class was just one of three design studios in the Weitzman School that dealt with the evolving shape of American airports this spring. 

Joining the students, guests, and faculty gathered at Irvine Auditorium for the 2019 Commencement Ceremony was Stuart Weitzman, the award-winning designer for whom the School of Design was named in late February, and the evening’s featured speaker.

He was the only nominee from the United States.

Their conversation was live streamed in collaboration with Madame Architect and video will soon be available.

A student group at the Weitzman School, Penn Women in Architecture (PWIA), is creating a community that increases the visibility and voices of women in architecture, brings awareness to the gender disparity in the profession, and empowers female architects to grow, succeed, and become leaders in the industry.

This is the time of year when DesignIntelligence surveys students and professionals about the best architecture and design schools in the U.S. Today, we’re calling on alumni, students, and friends to ensure that the enduring value of a Penn education is acknowledged.
