Lars Lerup
Lars Lerup, designer and writer, is a professor of architecture at
Rice School of Architecture. He was dean at Rice and William
Ward Watkin Professor from 1993 to 2009. Previously, he taught
for many years at UC Berkeley, where he is Professor Emeritus in
the Department of Architecture.

Lerup's work focuses on the intersection of nature and culture in
the contemporary American metropolis, and on Houston in
particular. He is currently finishing up work on a new book,
entitled Toxic Ecology: At the Limit of the Entrepreneurial City,
which examines the consequences that relentless growth and
expansion has had on various natural systems and how those
consequences will affect the future of the city.
