Sponsored by the College of Architecture, Planning & Landscape Architecture and American Institute of Architects Southern Arizona

The College’s Lecture Series was established in 1999 to serve as a forum that amplifies the common ground between the arts, humanities and sciences within the diverse constituencies of the College, the University and the community at large. It focuses on the views and projects of respected architects and landscape architects, as well as related practitioners.

Highly attended by the College and community, this Lecture Series offers an opportunity for our students─the very people who will impact our professions in the future─to listen, learn and dialogue with some of the most sought-after people related to our professions.
