Dana Cuff, professor of architecture and urban design and director of the cityLAB at UCLA, joins Rice Architecture for the annual Lleweln-Davies Sahni Innovative Practices lecture "Architecture's Long Game: Tedium, Teasers, and Tiny Steps" at 5:30 p.m. Dana Cuff is a professor, author, and scholar in architecture and urbanism at the University of California, Los Angeles where she is also the founding director of cityLAB, a think tank that explores design innovations in the emerging metropolis. Since receiving her Ph.D. in Architecture from UC Berkeley, Cuff has published and lectured widely about postwar Los Angeles, modern American urbanism, the architectural profession, affordable housing and spatially embedded computing. Two books have been particularly important: Architecture: the Story of Practice which remains an influential text about the culture of the design profession, and The Provisional City, a study of residential architecture's role in transforming Los Angeles over the past century.  Her urban and architectural research now span across continents to Sweden, China, Japan, and Mexico. In 2013 and 2016, Cuff received major, multi-year awards from the Mellon Foundation for the Urban Humanities Initiative, bringing design and the humanities together at UCLA.   The lecture is free and open to the public.
