Former Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, DC, Stanley Ira Hallet, FAIA, is a Professor Emeritus of Architecture at CUA where he teaches undergraduate and graduate studios and seminars exploring the historic and contemporary relationships between culture, urban design, landscape and architecture. Given his early experiences in Tunisia as a Peace Corps Volunteer (1964-66) and in Afghanistan as a Fulbright-Hayes Lecturer at the University of Kabul (1972), his studio work and lectures often explore issues of landscape, urban fabric and sacred space. Recently he was Studio Head in Rome, Italy and currently acts as Graduate Studio Head, School of Architecture and Planning in Paris, France. Based upon research and his personal experience as a cameraman, he has offered seminars and studios addressing the relationship of cinema and architecture in Schools of Architecture in the United States, Puerto Rico, France and Italy and has produced several documentary films with his wife, Judith Dwan Hallet, an internationally recognized documentary filmmaker. He has lectured widely on these subjects in both the United States and Europe and his observations have appeared in major international and national journals of architecture. Recognized as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects for his contributions to both architecture and architectural education, his work has been distinguished with 12 AIA design awards.
