The architect as generalist
The Berlage Sessions is a thematic seven-part lecture series focusing on scholarly research and critical approaches to contemporary architecture and urban design. This semester’s theme, 'The architect as generalist', explores how architecture practice is and has beeninherently expansive and cross-disciplinary, from the Renaissance to the present.
