The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture’s Fall 2022 Lecture Series explores a range of issues vital to the study and practice of architecture, design, and the built environment. Featuring a dynamic slate of speakers each semester and with all lectures open to the public, this series plays an integral role in fostering intellectual curiosity and the open exchange of ideas, both inside and outside the classroom.
