MICHELE LAMPRAKOS JOINS MAPP AS ASSISTANT PROFESSOR
The University of Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is pleased to announce Michele Lamprakos’ return to Maryland this fall as an Assistant Professor. Ms. Lamprakos holds a Ph.D. in architectural history, theory and criticism from MIT, and a Master of Architecture from U.C. Berkeley; she previously taught for both the architecture and historic preservation programs as an adjunct professor. With an extensive resume of study, practice and teaching, Ms. Lamprakos has taught courses and studios on a variety of topics, including adaptive reuse, preservation, and architectural and urban history. Her specialty is the Mediterranean and the Arab-Islamic world. Ms. Lamprakos is owner of PALIMPSEST LLC, a design and consulting firm that focuses on older buildings and sites. She will continue to bring her unique perspective and multi-disciplinary expertise to both programs in her new role.
“Michele’s arrival at University of Maryland underscores the strong desire to work collaboratively between programs within the School,” said Brian Kelly, Director of Maryland’s Architecture Program. “Her expertise in architecture and historic preservation will permit us to more fully explore the rich territories that bridge between these two disciplines.”
“We are thrilled to have Michele join the MAPP family in a larger capacity,” added Dr. Don Linebaugh, Director of the Historic Preservation Program. “She brings wonderful energy, ideas and experience to the classroom.”
