About the Lectureship

The Dean Arcangelo Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities was established by the BAC Alumni Association in 1992 to honor the spirit of volunteerism. Each year, the BAC invites a distinguished speaker to present a public lecture on the many ways in which architecture and design interact with other disciplines, an enrich our common life. It is thanks to our volunteers, as well as the donors and sponsors who contribute so generously to the Cascieri Lectureship Fund, that the lectureship is made possible.

Cascieri 23: Anupama Kundoo

Anupama Kundoo's internationally recognized and award-winning architecture practice started in 1990 anddemonstrates a strong focus on material research and experimentation towards an architecture that has low environmental impact and is appropriate to the socio-economic context. Anupama has built extensively in India and has worked, researched and taught in a range of cultural contexts across the world. She is currently Professor at UCJC Madrid and the Strauch Visiting Critic at Cornell University.
