50+ Counter Culture Public lecture series event banner with colorful squares.

Every semester the School of Architecture and Planning invites distinguished architects and planners to campus for a series of public symposia, seminars and exhibitions. Convening practitioners, scholars, students and members of the community around the top issues facing our profession today, the program is a vibrant part of the intellectual life of the school.

Our Fall 2019 program, COUNTER / CULTURE, takes its cue from the celebration of the School of Architecture and Planning's 50th year and sets up dialogues from a multitude of disciplinary perspectives on the subject of architectural education and institutional critique.
