A Perspective on Classical Architectural Education

On October 10, 2016, CARTA Director Christine G. H. Franck delivered a lecture at the University of Notre Dame’s School of Architecture for Thomas Gordon Smith’s retirement colloquium: Classical Architecture: Explore, Build, Teach in which she explored different perspectives on classical architectural education. According to the School of Architecture, Smith helped Notre Dame “become the nation’s foremost institution for the study of classical and traditional architecture.”

Director Franck’s lecture may be viewed below. Her lecture is preceded by Professor Emeritus Lothar Haselberger‘s lecture on new discoveries of his students at the University of Pennsylvania and followed by Peter Kenney‘s lecture on working with Thomas when he was Curator of the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
