Please join us as Victor Deupi discusses his book Transformations in Classical Architecture: New Directions in Research and Practice (Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers, 2018), based on recent research and work by leading figures associated with the University of Miami School of Architecture. The book examines how classical and traditional architecture could evolve in relation to new paradigms of research and practice. Dr. Deupi’s talk will discuss the book and reconsider it in light of the current climatic, health, and social crises that have shaken the profession.
