New PhD track in Architectural Technology

The PhD Program in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning announces an additional track in Architectural Technology. Doctoral research undertaken in this area will have the aim of advancing the state of knowledge in green building, and will typically include issues related to computation and simulation, environmental concerns, and energy performance. A background in architecture and/or engineering-related fields is required. In addition to a highly interdisciplinary curriculum that includes theoretical and empirical approaches, especially the history and philosophy of technology, the student will be associated with the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, which will provide the intellectual context for this research. 

“It is with great excitement that we inaugurate a new doctoral concentration in Architectural Technology, which will allow students to take advantage of the extraordinary resources in this area at Harvard University in the context of a program based in the humanities and social sciences,” said Erika Naginski, Professor of Architectural History and Director of the PhD program.
