Marilys Nepomechie, Architecture Professor

I majored in English and American literature as an undergraduate, thinking I’d pursue a Ph.D. or perhaps a career in law.  A freshman drawing class derailed me to the visual arts, and childhood experiences as the daughter of an architect turned me to the profession and to a graduate degree from MIT. Architecture is a […]
