Faculty w/Admin Appointment, TEMPE Campus, Mailcode 1605
Biography

Marc J Neveu is the head of the Architecture Program in The Design School at Arizona State University. Prior to this appointment, Neveu was chair of graduate and undergraduate architecture programs in the School of Architecture at Woodbury University. During his first year of service at Woodbury, both programs were awarded an eight-year re-accreditation from NAAB. Neveu also helped launch IPAL initiatives in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. He has worked with faculty to rethink and develop curricula intended to improve student learning and outcomes. Under his leadership, the undergraduate program was ranked nationally by Design Intelligence for the first time in the program’s history, and has moved up in the rankings in each of the previous three years. Currently executive editor of the biannual peer-reviewed Journal of Architectural Education, Neveu is a widely acclaimed educator and scholar.

Much of Neveu’s research considers the role of history in contemporary praxis. He has published on the origins of architectural education in the Italian 18th century as well as our contemporary context. In 2015, "Architecture’s Appeal," co-edited with Negin Djavaherian, was published by Routledge. The collection of essays situates the tradition of phenomenological hermeneutics within contemporary practice and includes essays from authors such as David Leatherbarrow, Steven Holl, Karsten Harries, Kenneth Frampton, and Juhani Pallasmaa. A manuscript for the book "L-148 twisted," edited with Mehrdad Hadighi and Tsz Ng Yan, is in production and will be published in early 2018. The book is an oblique monograph on the Lafayette 148 building in Shantou, China. More recently, Neveu has published and lectured on the work of the architect Douglas Darden and is currently working on a book-length study of Darden’s work.

Education
Research Interests

Neveu’s research explores the role of storytelling – both in pedagogy and practice. He is currently working on a digital archive of the work of the rhetorical architect, Douglas Darden. He is the current Executive Editor of the biannual peer-reviewed Journal of Architectural Education.
