AIANY Social Science and Architecture committee is thrilled to be hosting Galen Cranz as our special guest for our April committee meeting. If you don’t know Galen or her work, you are in for a treat; if you do know Galen, you know that it will be a thought provoking discussion. Galen Cranz is Professor Emerita of Architecture at the University of California at Berkeley. She received her doctorate in sociology from the University of Chicago and is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique. She teaches social and cultural approaches to architecture and urban design. Emphasizing ethnography as a research method, she brings users’ as well as creators’ perspectives to our understanding of built environments. In 2011 she received the Career Award, the highest award of the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA). The co-chairs of this committee highly recommend her book Ethnography for Designers (2016), if you wish to familiarize yourself with her work. Please contact the co-chairs if you plan to attend this meeting and you will be forwarded a reading sample ahead of the meeting.
The committees of AIA New York are the foundations from which the Chapter positions itself in the field of architecture, whether through discussion, advocacy, policy making and development, event and exhibition planning, or other endeavors.
Committees meet monthly, usually at the Center for Architecture. AIA members, AIA associate members, and general public are all welcome to participate.
If you have questions or are considering attending a meeting for the first time, contact each committee’s co-chairs for more information at aiany.org/committees.
