Brandon Clifford has been appointed first holder of the Belluschi Lectureship in the School of Architecture + Planning’s Department of Architecture, a new three-year teaching and research post named for Pietro Belluschi, dean of the school from 1951 to 1965, in recognition of his generous guidance of young practitioners and scholars.

Clifford is the founder of The Malleablist Movement in architecture, a rejection of the assumption that architecture is dedicated to permanence and stability in favor of a practice embracing variable processes and structures that respond to site-specific forces. He is also co-founder, with Wes McGee, of Matter Design, a collaborative studio committed to experimentation and research at a variety of scales including, importantly, the translation of past means and traditional methods of making into contemporary digital processes.
