Darius Ammon studied architecture and urbanism in Zurich, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro. He was additionally educated in the practices of Diller + Scofidio + Renfro and OMA New York. After graduating from ETH Zurich in 2010, he taught first-year design studio and lectured on theory and history of architectural drawing at the École polytechnique féderale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Following two years in the field, learning from Italian Renaissance masters, Ammon moved on to serve as the head of a design research program at EPFL’s atelier de la conception del l’éspace (ALICE). Currently, he is working on his novel Architecture of the Soul, in which he discusses the relationship between architecture and poetry.

For 43 years, the UT College of Architecture and Design has hosted leading architects and design professionals through its Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture Series and more recently the Governor’s Chair Lecture Series and General Shale Lectures to enrich the education of its students and elevate the profession in the community.  In 2016-2017, more than a dozen professionals from around the world will lecture at the college.  For the full list, visit
