Marc J. Neveu graduated with a professional degree in architecture in 1995 and began working at Kallmann McKinnell & Wood Architects in Boston. After three years there he traveled to Montréal where he completed a post-professional M.Arch in the History and Theory program at McGill University. Following a few years of professional work back in Boston, Neveu returned to Montréal to pursue studies toward a Ph.D. His dissertation, entitled Architectural Lessons of Carlo Lodoli (1690–1764), was named to the Dean’s Honor List in 2006. It focuses on the origins of architectural education in the Veneto during the eighteenth century. The dissertation discusses Carlo Lodoli’s bi-fold understanding of indole (inherent nature)—with respect to meaning of materials and architectural education—and includes the first ever translation of Lodoli’s fables, Apologhi Immaginati (1787), into English. While working on his dissertation Neveu was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for study in Venice and a Collection Research Grant at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Neveu has taught at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and as a Visiting Faculty member at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. Neveu is the current Executive Editor of the Journal of Architectural Education. In 2014 he was named Chair of the School of Architecture at Woodbury University in Los Angeles. He has published on issues concerning architectural pedagogy in the Italian eighteenth century as well as our contemporary context.
He is currently working on a book-length project on the work of Douglas Darden and the lecture will talk about Douglas Darden’s work
