About Tricia
Tricia is an architect and architectural historian. She came to Paris a little over 12 years ago to spend a year learning French for her research, and has never left! Tricia is an Assistant Professor in Design & Theory at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Grenoble; she also teaches in Boston University’s London-Paris Architecture & Urbanism Program. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Detroit, a Graduate Diploma (history & theory) from the Architectural Association, a MA (French cultural studies) from Columbia University and a PhD (architecture) from the University of Paris 8. Focused on the 20th century, her research interests include the architectural/urban development of Paris and its region as well as public building policy in France. A veteran of walking tours of Paris organized for architectural students, she now brings her expertise to a broader audience.
