ALEXANDRA LOEW
M.ARCH. ’02, PH.D. STUDENT,
DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE

WHAT DOES UCLA’S Department of Architecture have to offer that schools like Harvard, Columbia and Yale don’t?

Internationally acclaimed, leading-edge thinkers like department Chair Sylvia Lavin, professors Thom Mayne, Robert Somol and Greg Lynn and associated faculty such as David Erdman and Mark Lee, to name just a few, says Ph.D. student Alexandra Loew.

“When you think about architecture, you think about who the voices are that mean the most to you,” says Loew, who obtained her undergraduate degree in cultural anthropology from the University of Chicago, then attended the London School of Economics, where she studied social anthropology. “Who is writing and publishing and practicing and designing? Whose voice seems to most clearly point in the direction that you would like to see the field move into?

“I thought long and hard about where I would go,” says Loew. “There weren’t many programs, even when you look at the Ivy Leagues, that had as many interesting voices.
