It is with mixed emotions that we share the news of Frank Weiner’s retirement after a remarkable 37-year tenure at the School of Architecture. Joining us in 1987, Frank has been a cornerstone of our institution, serving as Professor, Head of the Department of Architecture, and the visionary founding Director of the School of Architecture + Design.

Reflecting on all of the retirements in the past few years, those of us who remain feel a great responsibility of carrying on the formative and valuable traditions of the school while welcoming the next generation. Frank’s leadership, the questions and challenges he continues to pose, are a gift to all of us.
