  • Visiting Assistant Professor of Practice

David H. Haney is an architectural historian whose research focuses on the relationship between architecture, landscape, ecology, and geography. Haney’s most recent book, Architecture and The Nazi Cultural Landscape: Blood, Soil, Building, appeared in September 2022. His monograph on the German modernist landscape architect Leberecht Migge (1881-1935), When Modern was Green (Routledge, 2010), was the first study to reassert the critical role of ecological thinking in Weimar modern architecture. He received his PhD in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005, and his Master of Environmental Design from Yale in 1995. From 2005 to 2018 he taught in the architecture schools of the University of Kent and Newcastle University in England. He has lectured widely and has been the recipient of a number of awards including a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship (2015-2016), and the SAH Elisabeth Blair MacDougall Award (2013).
