Fisher profiled on AIA Web site

Dean Tom Fisher (Architecture) is profiled on the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Web site. Fisher cites social critic Lewis Mumford as one of his primary influences. "He talked about how architects used to be more at the center of intellectual life in this country, and that we had largely given up our place as public intellectuals, which he thought was a shame, given the importance the physical environment has on our lives," says Fisher. "I've been trying to live up to that challenge ever since."
