Lerner stepping down as architecture dean

Ralph Lerner, dean of the School of Architecture, has announced that he is stepping down as dean effective July 1, 2002, following an academic leave of absence that he has been granted during the the 2001-02 academic year. Architecture Professor Mario Gandelsonas will serve as acting dean while Lerner is on leave.

Lerner, the George Dutton 27 Professor of Architecture, has been dean since 1989. He came to Princeton in 1984 as a lecturer and was named an associate professor in 1987. After his leave, he will continue as a full-time member of the faculty.

Gandelsonas joined the Princeton faculty as professor of architecture in 1991 and previously served as a visiting critic. He also has taught at Yale, Harvard, Sarah Lawrence College, the University of Illinois and other institutions.

Known as a leading urban designer, Gandelsonas work includes projects in the U.S. and abroad, including a prize-winning design of a parkway in Marseilles, France, and designs for several community centers in New York. Gandelsonas has lectured on urbanism and urban design around the world.

He received a diploma from the School of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Buenos Aires in 1960 and a certificate from the Centre de Recherche dUrbanisme, Paris, in 1969.
