Virtual Lecture — “The Michael Lykoudis Lecture Series: The Shared Building Traditions of the World”


Location: virtually via Zoom

This virtual program will shine a light on the vernacular architecture intrinsic to locales around the world, and how they incorporate classical principles.

The event's inaugural speakers are award-winning architects, and urban planners Nada Breitman-Jakov and Marc Breitman, Paris-based architects known for improving cities through quality architecture and urbanism. A native of Belgium, Nada Breitman-Jakov attended the L’École de la Cambre in Brussels, receiving degrees in both architecture and urban planning. In Paris, she received a degree at the “Ecole de Chaillot” for the preservation and restoration of historic buildings. Marc Breitman was born in Paris and received an architectural degree from the École des Beaux-Arts. Together, the two formed Breitman and Breitman, an architecture and urban planning studio in 1989.
