Lecturers

So far confirmed keynote speakers at ICUP2022 Conference are:

Nikos A. Salingaros, PhD, Professor at University of Texas at San Antonio

Dr. Nikos A. Salingaros is Professor of Mathematics and Architecture at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and is on the faculty of the Building Beauty Master’s Program. He has held guest professorships in Architecture at the Delft University of Technology, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Querétaro, Mexico, and Università di Roma III. An internationally recognized architectural theorist and urbanist, he is known for his original contributions applying Mathematics to Architecture. Salingaros helped to establish and further extend new disciplines such as Biophilia, Design Patterns, Complexity Theory, Neurogeometric design, the Fractal City, and the Network City. He won the 2019 Stockholm Culture Award for Architecture, and shared the 2018 Clem Labine Award for Traditional Architecture with Michael W. Mehaffy. The author of seven monographs and almost 200 research papers, he directs Ph.D. students in architecture and urbanism at many institutions worldwide. Salingaros worked with visionary architect and urbanist Christopher Alexander for twenty years in helping to edit Alexander’s four-volume book The Nature of Order. Mehaffy and Salingaros co-authored (together with other researchers) A New Pattern Language for Developing Regions (2019), an extension and update of the classic A Pattern Language (1977) by Christopher Alexander and colleagues, which has had a profound influence on software development. In the Planetizen surveys of “The 100 most important urban thinkers of all time”, Salingaros ranked 11th in 2009 and 26th in 2017.

Ali A. Alraouf, PhD, Head of CB, Development, CB and Research Unit-QNMP, Research and Training, Ministry of urban planning, Doha, Qatar

Prof. Alraouf is an architect and urban planner interested in research and practice related to architectural, urban, sustainable design and holistic planning. He was a Visiting Scholar at University of California at Berkeley-USA. He currently acts as head of Capacity Building, training, research and development unit at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME). He is also the leader of Green Urbanism and Planning Group at Qatar Green Building Council.


Nir Buras, PhD, Classic Planning Institute, Washington, D.C.

Dr. Nir Buras is a veteran architect and planner with experience in strategic planning, architecture and transportation design, as well as research and lecturing. Buras’s work includes the design of East Side Access at Grand Central Terminal, New York; the International Terminal D at Dallas-Fort-Worth airport; work on the Washington DC Dulles Metro line; and the US Capitol and the Senate and House Office Buildings in Washington. While writing his PhD on the history and theory of Modernist design, Dr. Buras was introduced to the classical method. Following his practical experience on Grand Central Terminal in New York and the Capitol Complex buildings in Washington, DC, he received his classical certification from the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA) in New York, and founded the ICAA’s Washington, DC Chapter. Dr. Buras led the formation of the College of Chapters at the ICAA and was its first representative on the National Board. Frustrated with the planning processes currently dominating urbanism, Dr. Buras visited over 100 cities worldwide, and wrote his seminal book, The Art of Classic Planning. Recently published by Harvard University Press, it was lauded by Andres Duany, Ben Bolgar, and James Stevens Curl. Leon Krier called it the “mother of all panning books.” Commensurable in its scope with Raymond Unwin’s and Hegemann and Peets’ books, The Art of Classic Planning brought about the foundation of the Classic Planning Institute in Washington, DC, its studio, academy, library, laboratory, and stoa. The main claims of the classical method are that architecture is central to urbanism; that homeostatic balance of town and country is vital; that the method itself is holistic; and that manual construction may be essential to individual, societal, and planetary wellbeing. While the institute promotes 100-Year Plans for communities, Dr. Buras, a “doctor of cities,” holds that the propose of urbanism is to create a legacy of beautiful places for people.
