Bryan Norwood is a PhD student in the history and theory of architecture at Harvard University. His current work focuses on the intersection of philosophy and architectural education. He is writing a dissertation on the concepts used in the writing and teaching of the history of architecture in professional architecture schools, focusing on nineteenth and twentieth-century American developments. Through the philosophical work of Martin Heidegger, Gilles Deleuze, and Reinhart Koselleck, Bryan’s dissertation will explore the ways historians have shaped the body of architectural history.

His work has appeared in Philosophical Forum, Harvard Design Magazine, and MONU. His article “Working on a Diagonal: towards a new image of architecture history” is forthcoming in the volume Intensities and Lines of Flight: Deleuze, Guattari and the Arts (Rowman and Littlefield, 2014).
