The Bartlett School of Architecture


Honorary and visiting academics

Through the year, talks by internationally-renowned visiting speakers, academics, associates and affiliates give students and staff the chance to deepen their knowledge and understanding of architecture.

UCL also occasionally awards visiting professorships, honorary professorships and honorary degrees to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to The Bartlett and the wider built environment community. Current holders of these include Maxwell Hutchinson, Itsuko Hasegawa, Mark Whitby and Sir Nicholas Grimshaw.
