Lectures and Events

Public events and activities in Graduate Architecture and Urban Design are held in Higgins Hall Center Auditorium and the Robert and Hazel Segal Gallery. The center building—designed by Steven Holl and opened in 2005—hosts the school’s multimedia facilities as well as large bright open studios for the graduate program. School-wide lectures, symposia, and conferences bring a diverse set of architects, theorists, and practitioners from related fields to show and discuss their work in open an forum. The Segal Gallery hosts annual shows, special events, exhibitions of contemporary work, and historical scholarship.
