In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Walton Critic program, the Catholic University School of Architecture and Planning is hosting a special event Oct. 24-27, 2018. During four intense days, six of the past/present 10 Walton Critics will engage our community through public lectures, design reviews, conversations, and a panel discussion.

The intention of this high-profile reunion is not only to assess the work produced over the past 10 years but also to consider future directions and opportunities. We will do this in the context of our contemporary world vis-à-vis architectural practice, education, and the objectives of the Walton program.

We are hosting 6 past/present Walton guests visiting our school to lecture, participate in a panel discussion, and give design crits to all our students.  They are Juhani Pallasmaa (2011 Walton Critic, Finland), Alberto Campo Baeza (2012 Walton Critic, Spain), Eliana Bormida (2014 Walton Critic, Argentina), Michael Crosbie (2015 Walton Critic, USA), Prem Chandavarkar (2016 Walton Critic, India), and Susan Jones (2018 Walton Critic, USA).
