Lunch UP: Maria Arquero and Michael McCulloch

Architecture and Urban Planning: The Divide and Juncture

In many universities, it is not unusual for urban planning departments to share building space and resources with the architecture department. This panel discusses the benefits and detriments of this set up. Examples of questions include the following:

  • Why does the tension exist? Or does it not exist?
  • Can it be eased?
  • Are architects aware of this tension?
  • Is there a benefit to being in the same building and sharing physical infrastructures and resources? 
  • Does it create opportunities for synergies in the pedagogies and teaching models? In the scholarship and creative practice production?
  • Is it advancing interdisciplinary collaborations by informing how discipline and profession converse with each other?
  • Would planning benefit instead from being in a public policy, geography, social work, (or an alternative—law, engineering, art) school?
  • What would we gain? What would we lose?

Join Maria Arquero and Michael McCulloch, two professors with experience teaching in both architecture and urban planning for an engaging discussion on disciplinary divide and juncture.

Lunch is included, please bring a drink.

These sessions are a response to requests from faculty and students to learn more about what’s going on in the field in an informal environment. We hope this can inspire emergent thoughts and connections that will inform our scholarship. If you have research you would like to present, or a provocative article you would like to discuss, please speak with Larissa Larsen, David Weinreich, or Carla Kayanan.
