Karla Britton, Lecturer at Yale School of Architecture
B.A., University of Colorado, Boulder
M.A., Columbia University
Ph.D., Harvard University
Ms. Britton’s academic work focuses on the modern architect’s engagement with tradition in twentieth-century architecture and urbanism. Her teaching has emphasized the intersection of classicism and modernization, the evolution of modern ecclesiastical building, and in a multireligious context the relationship between religion and modern architecture. Ms. Britton’s books include the monograph Auguste Perret (published by Phaidon in both English and French, 2001); the prize-winning Hawaiian Modern (Yale, 2008; edited with Dean Sakamoto); and the interdisciplinary Constructing the Ineffable (Yale School of Architecture, 2011). Her current book project, “Middle Ground/Middle East: Religious Sites in Urban Contexts,” explores religious space in contemporary urbanism. Before coming to Yale, Ms. Britton was director of the architecture program in Paris of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and associate professor (adjunct) of architecture. At Yale, she is resident director of the Berkeley Center at Yale. Ms. Britton received a B.A. from the University of Colorado, Boulder, an M.A. from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. from Harvard University.
