Doug Graf will present a public lecture in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:30PM on Wednesday, October 2. The lecture is sponsored by AIA Columbus, and will be the kick-off presentation to "ArChallenge," details forthcoming. This lecture is free and open to the public. 

Graf is a Professor of Architecture at the Knowlton School. He received an A.B. in architecture and urban planning from Princeton and an M.Arch. from Harvard. Graf currently teaches courses in design and architectural theory. His teaching career includes positions at the University of Kentucky, the University of Washington, and Yale, as well as positions in Britain, Germany, and Finland, where he first went on a Fulbright to study the work of Alvar Aalto. Graf has received five awards for teaching excellence.

Graf’s interest in design theory has a primary focus on formal analysis, which is applied not only to architecture but also to urban form, landscape, photography, painting, product design, and graphics. One of his signature investigations has been into the structure and use of diagrams as tools for 'close reading,' beginning with an article in Perspecta. Many of his investigations have explored 'metaphoric time' as a central design strategy with essays on buildings as diverse as the Sancturary of Aesklepios, Ronchamp, Villa Mairea, and Vaux-le-Vicomte. He has also written about the idea of the 'encyclopedic set' as a persistent means of modeling complexity and the use of 'fictive landscapes' to derive narratives for the city.

Transit and the movement of people throughout an urban environment has historically been a subject of much debate and controversy among citizens, and especially between architects, designers and city planners. Transit has once again become part of the conversation of everyday people engaged in envisioning a better city. Three speakers from different backgrounds will look at historical precedents, current models, and the investigation of future transit plans here in Columbus to put the current conversation into the larger context. Individual speakers will give presentations on the history, the broader vision, and the current situation of transit in Columbus, Ohio. The presentations will conclude with a panel discussion and then open up for questions from the audience.
