Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk

The Karl Du Puy Lecture in Urban Design was created in 2021 to honor the memory and legacy of Professor Du Puy, a force of nature and a giant within the Architecture Program at the University of Maryland where his passion for urbanism, architectural history and building craft was a foundational part of the curriculum. This lecture will continue to raise issues of urban design and inform future built environment professionals about their responsibility to the city.

Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, FAIA, LEED AP is the Malcolm Matheson Distinguished Professor of Architecture and Director of the Master of Urban Design Program at the University of Miami. She is recognized as a leader of the movement called the New Urbanism, promoting walkable resilient urban design. A co-founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism in 1992, her teaching, research and consulting professional practice has ranged across new community design, community rebuilding, regional plans and zoning codes. A number of innovations in professional practice, such as the traditional neighborhood design zoning code (TND), were initiated with students in the University of Miami’s School of Architecture design studios and first implemented through community outreach in South Florida.

Brian Kelly, AIA is Associate Dean for Development and Faculty Affairs and Professor in the Architecture Program at the University of Maryland College Park, where he teaches introductory design studios, site design and analysis, and graduate studios that focus on campus planning and academic architecture. He received his professional degree from the University of Notre Dame and a post-professional degree in urban design from Cornell University. His scholarly work includes speculations on teaching methodology, the design process, relationships between traditions and modernity, and of course campus planning. Kelly's plein air watercolors, charcoal drawings, and sketchbook drawings have been exhibited widely and were part of a traveling exhibition Lines of Inquiry: The Architectural Drawings of Brian Kelly.
