The PhD Program in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning announced an additional track in Architectural Technology in association with the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities (CGBC).  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. The CGBC will provide intellectual context for research set within a highly interdisciplinary curriculum. A background in architecture and/or engineering-related fields is required.

“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.
