Traditional architecture and urbanism, linking architectural tradition and classicism to urbanism and environmental issues
“Architects are asked to act, and through their actions, to define how the world ought to be,” writes Lykoudis in a letter to his students in the School of Architecture, encouraging them to adhere to the school’s theoretical emphasis on the principles of the traditional city and its architecture, to “use the past as a way of informing the future.” A national and international leader in linking architectural tradition and classicism to urbanism and environmental issues, Lykoudis has devoted his career to the building, study and promotion of traditional architecture and urbanism. He has organized several major conferences that have been collaborations between Notre Dame and other organizations, including the Classical Architecture League and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America, A Vision of Europe and the Congress for New Urbanism. Prior to joining the Notre Dame faculty, Lykoudis worked as a project designer and architect for firms in Florida, Greece, Connecticut and New York. He has directed his own practice since 1983 in Athens, Stamford, Conn., and South Bend.
