12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT October 22, 2019


Celebrate our diverse student body with discussions about the interface of architectural thinking and place.


  • Anna Korneeva (Russia), BArch
  • Kojo Quainoo (Ghana), MArch
  • Yagmur Yenice (Turkey), MS

The three speakers, representing the BArch, MArch and MS programs, will each give a 12-15 minute lecture about the influential distinguishing characteristics—architectural and otherwise—of their “hometown.”

It may be a cultural convention, or the colors of buildings, or the sound of birdsong. Maybe it’s the din of traffic, the ornamental structure of a bridge, or and the way water drains on the street after a storm.

How might this place, your  “home”, impact your approach to studying architecture? 

How might you bring your roots to bear on our community?

Refreshments will be served.
