The Boston Architectural College presents the Cascieri Lectureship in the Humanities featuring Dr. Mahesh Daas, President of Boston Architectural College. President Daas looks at a central question for years to come: how humans and robots could live together, a question architects and designers need to proactively ponder in order to design buildings, neighborhoods and cities for decades to come. Based on his book Towards A Robotic Architecture, he will examine robotics and its architectural implications from phenomenological perspective.
President Daas is a designer, technologist, and experienced academic leader. He previously served as dean of the School of Architecture and Design, University of Kansas, Lawrence. He earned a bachelor's degree in architecture from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University; master's degree in urban design from Kansas State University; and executive doctorate in higher education management from the University of Pennsylvania.
President Daas recently co-edited Towards a Robotic Architecture. He is also the author of Leading with Aesthetics: The Transformational Leadership of President Charles M. Vest at M.I.T. In 2011, he was the youngest educator to be elevated as an Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture Distinguished Professor. He currently serves on the editorial board of Construction Robotics Journal.
