Kevin Berry

PhD Candidate in the History and Theory of Architecture

Kevin Berry received his BA in Philosophy from Hanover College (2009) and an MA in Philosophy from Boston College (2011), where his research interests included phenomenology, the philosophy of art, and the history of philosophy. Between 2011-2014, he was an adjunct professor of philosophy at Boston College after teaching as an adjunct instructor at Northeastern University and Indiana University. His research in architecture has focused on German modernism, the history of architectural theory, and the divergences of phenomenology between architecture and philosophy across the 20th century. His dissertation raises questions around the relationship between architecture and politics through a study on the German avant-garde art critic and theorist Adolf Behne‚Äôs writings between 1912 and 1933. Kevin was a Fulbright Scholar in Berlin, Germany during the 2018-19 academic year and is currently based in Philadelphia.
