Julia W. Robinson

University of Minnesota - B.A. Arch '71

What was the most important thing/skill/concept you learned at the School of Architecture?
How to handle a large number of architectural variables at once and come up with an appropriate design.

Who made the most lasting impression (most influenced you) and why?
Clare Cooper Marcus, Amos Rapoport, John Zeisel, Oscar Newman, Irving Altman and the other guests in the seminar on housing organized by Roger Clemence and Evelyn Franklin in 1975, I believe. I participated in this several years after graduating and it led to my study of anthropology and all the later research I have done on such topics as architectural programming and housing.
