Steiner lectures on urban human ecology

Frederick Steiner, dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin and an internationally renowned expert on environmental planning, came to Texas A&M University September 2002 to lecture on Urban Human Ecology at the Langford Architecture Center.

The event, sponsored by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, was followed by a reception in the Langford Gallery.

Steiner has spent his career focusing on the need to balance the interests of conservation and development. Prior to joining the UT faculty in August 2001, he served as professor and director of the School of Planning and Landscape Architecture at Arizona State University. He has taught planning, landscape architecture and environmental science at Washington State University, the University of Colorado-Denver and the University of Pennsylvania. He also has worked on research projects in The Netherlands, Sardinia and Cremona, Italy and Valladolid, Spain.

In 1988, Steiner was the National Endowment of the Arts Rome Prize Fellow in Historic Preservation and Conservation at the American Academy in Rome.

His lecture focused on topics from his latest book, "Human Ecology: Conspiring with Our Natures."
