Catherine Maumi teaches History and Cultures of Architecture at the Grenoble School of Architecture (ENSAG), where she coordinates the Laboratoire Métiers de l’Histoire de l’Architecture, édifices-villes-territoires (MHAevt).

Sala Riunioni 10, Bldg. 5 - Campus Leonardo
Piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32

She will present her studies, from Thomas Jefferson and the regional planning in the USA, to Frank Lloyd Wright and the conception of Broadacre City. Through this path, some issues of the research in architecture will be discussed, i.e. the need to study the socio-political and cultural context to understand the production of a built environment or the use of history as a method for questioning the present.

After Catherine Maumi’s lecture, PhD students working on closed topics are welcome to give a short presentation on their methods, tools and expected results.
