Mark Lamster, Dallas Morning News architecture critic and associate professor in practice of architecture at UTA, has been awarded a Loeb Fellowship at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

In Harvard's announcement, Lamster is described as a champion of "progressive policies, preservation, and higher design standards for all citizens. While elevating the city’s conversation on architecture and urban planning, his writing pressured its leadership to create a preservation task force and new ordinances safeguarding the city's landmarks." 

The Loeb Fellowship is a worldwide network of practitioners supporting equity and social justice through the built and natural environment. Lamster, who will be among a class of nine 2017 Loeb Fellows, will spend one year at Harvard starting in late August to complete the one-year fellowship. According to the announcement by the Dallas Morning News, Lamster will continue to contribute to the newspaper during the fellowship.
