Brad Horn Named Interim Dean

Associate Professor Bradley Horn has been appointed interim dean of the Spitzer School of Architecture.

Horn is a practicing architect and partner at Berman Horn Studio and a dedicated teacher who came to CCNY in 2000 to teach in the undergraduate architecture program. Over the past two decades, he worked closely with the school and college administration, faculty, and staff to transform the undergraduate admissions process and to launch initiatives for encouraging design excellence and promoting the unique work of Spitzer students. In 2008, Horn became director of the graduate programs in architecture, establishing master’s-level architectural study as a vital component of the school and college.

In a statement to the school community, Horn expressed gratitude to Dean Lesley Lokko for all that she accomplished at the school in such a short time period and for her leadership through the COVID-19 crisis. He expressed an intention to advocate for students and faculty from each and every program and identified several priorities for the months ahead: continuing to support students impacted by the pandemic while planning to resume in-person operations when feasible; identifying ways to make the academic environment even more inclusive and equitable; and encouraging new initiatives that push the boundaries of design thinking and research.

The college will be assembling a search committee as soon as possible and launching a search for a permanent dean for Spitzer.
