We invite you to join us in Cambridge on April 12-13, 2019 for Turning Points in Architecture, Design, and Research. This two-day event and symposium will close off the year-long celebration of 150 years of architecture education at MIT.

On Friday afternoon, join us for tours and talks on and off-campus at labs, offices, workspaces, and campus sites. In the evening, we launch the symposium with “Heading of the Heads” a discussion amongst recent Department Heads Yung Ho Chang, Adèle Naudé Santos, Nader Tehrani, J. Meejin Yoon, and Interim Head Andrew Scott, followed by open studios and drinks around the Dome.

The symposium continues on Saturday with our faculty presenting their research in sessions focused on environmental, social and digital turning points, followed by a discussion of the futures of architecture education. We close the evening with a reception for students, alumni, and faculty, past and present.
