Our series of open lectures kicks off this season this Friday May 25th at 19:00 with Joseph Aranha, architect and professor of architecture at Texas Tech University, with a talk on the the relevance of tradition in non-Western architecture.
Educated in India and the United States, Aranha’s research focuses on meaning and symbolism in traditional non-western architecture. He has taught all over the world, particularly in Asia, the Middle East and Africa and is a recipient of various Fulbright Fellowships. His research and publications on traditional dwellings and settlements have taken him to Nepal, Bali, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Malaysia and India. As professor, in addition to teaching architectural design studios, he is also very involved with setting up and directing study-abroad collaborations with universities and educational organizations in Spain, Mexico and India.
