Affiliated Faculty Speakers:
Dan Adams is Director and Associate Professor of the School of Architecture at Northeastern University. Dan teaches design studios and seminars, in both the architecture and sustainable urban environments programs. These courses focus on negotiating architectural design with environmental context, with specific focus on integrating infrastructural systems in cities. Dan coordinates the fourth-year undergraduate urbanism studio for both architecture and landscape architecture students. This studio investigates the design of urban frameworks for integrating landscape and infrastructure systems into multiple scales of the built environment, from region scale networks to the architectural detail.
Sara Jensen Carr is an assistant professor of architecture and the program director for the Master of Design in Sustainable Urban Environments program at Northeastern University.
