Harlyn Thompson Lectureship Fund
Established by Harlyn E. Thompson, former Dean of the Faculty of Architecture (1980-84), the lectureship will be an endowed fund intended to support the costs (airfare, accommodation and honorarium) associated with bringing in participants from a range of design and research disciplines, recognizing projects whose significance extends beyond any one profession or field.

Projects presented should emphasize a link between research and practice, demonstrating how an understanding of human interaction with place can inspire design. The commitment is to interdisciplinary focus with concern for human factors in the design of the built environment.

Participants will be invited from the full breadth of environmental design and related research activities, including all of the disciplines in the Faculty of Architecture as well as industrial design, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography and the physical sciences.

Participants shall agree, in advance, that their lecture will be available for posting on the Faculty of Architecture's website and publication in the Faculty's Network or in a future Faculty sponsored publication.
