    This past week at the Knowlton School, Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professor, Neil Denari, joined architecture students for three days of seminars. 

    (Denari speaks with graduate architecture students during a seminar session.)

    Denari joins a list of leading practitioners and scholars who have been teaching the seminar since 1996. This past week was the first part of Denari's visit to the Knowlton School. In addition to leading the seminar with third year architecture graduate students, Denari gave a public lecture that is a part of the Baumer Fall 2015 Energies Lecture series. 

    During the seminar sessions, graduate students got the opportunity to ask questions about Neil's work, writing, practice and life. Denari presented a number of projects in addition to his lecture and gave students an inside look at his process as a designer, his teaching and an in depth look at his forthcoming monograph. 

    Students have been looking at Denari's work critically on a number of topics including color, graphics, domesticity, geometry and more. Students put together presentations about their research of specific topics to share with Neil that will culminate in a final research paper. Neil's professorship will be documented and developed into a volume for the school's Source Book in Architecture series.

    The next phase of Denari's time at the Knowlton School will consist of a design based seminar where the graduate students will use the knowledge and intel they gained from the previous sessions. The students will get the opportunity to speak and work with Denari in conjunction with Robert Somol (fellow educator and architectural theorist). 

    Denari and Somol will give a public lecture at the Knowlton School on October 13.
