Research Interests

How architects think through designs, the involvement of that with techniques of drawing, and the intersection of that with the mentalities of their interlocutors, clients on the one hand and parallel professionals – engineers, urbanists, social scientists -- on the other.

The application of this in the shaping of the modern city c. 1830-1914, especially Paris and Chicago.
