We&rsquo;ve got to address it through a theoretical lens. - Milton Curry</p></em><br /><br /><p>In this interview conducted by Christopher Hawthorne as part of his pithy Building Type column, the soon-to-be-Dean of USC's School of Architecture Milton Curry talks about reintroducing a theoretical emphasis to the school's programs.

"Los Angeles metro region is huge in its economic footprint, its land footprint," Curry explains. "I believe cities to some degree have more influence than merely being one of a combination of cities within one nation. They execute trade deals on their own, in some cases. They execute climate policies, other kinds of policing policies on their own. I think that some of those lessons will apply to Los Angeles."</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/150004473/after-a-tough-couple-years-the-frank-lloyd-wright-school-of-architecture-has-a-new-lease-on-life-and-a-new-name After a tough couple years, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture has a new lease on lifeā€”and a new name Nicholas Korody 2017-04-24T20:41:00-04:00 >2017-04-25T13:52:32-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/7d/7dkp908ydibnrtn8.jpg" width="650" height="486" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/taliesin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">T</a><a href="http://archinect.com/taliesin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">he Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture</a>&nbsp;has had a rough go of things the last few years.
