The biennial Dissertation Colloquium brings together a select group of doctoral students from diverse institutional and disciplinary backgrounds working on dissertation topics related to the history, theory, and criticism of American architecture, urbanism, and landscape. 

The Buell Conference on the History of Architecture brings together scholars in architectural and urban history to discuss topics in architecture, urbanism, and modernity as broadly understood.

On February 18th, The Buell Center marked the completion of the publication and website, Comments on Foreclosed with a public event, “Comments on Comments.”  A performance of excerpts from the archive opened a multimedia panel discussion and Q&A.  In so doing, certain gaps in the public conversation on American housing and urbanism were to be identified, and certain systemic deficiencies called out.

“Comments on Comments” was also a conversation about the architecture of the media—including its frameworks, practices, protocols, and structures. The public is invited to join Columbia students, faculty, and many of those who contributed to the initial discussion, in continuing to address these urgent issues shaping our discipline.
