Stanley Hallet is the former Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, DC. And is a Professor Emeritus of Architecture at CUA. He teaches undergraduate and graduate studios and seminars exploring the historic and contemporary relationships between culture, urban design, landscape and architecture. Given his early experiences in Tunisia as a Peace Corps Volunteer (1964-66) and in Afghanistan as a Fulbright-Hayes Lecturer at the University of Kabul (1972), his studio work and lectures often explore issues of landscape, urban fabric and sacred space. Stanley has 15 AIA awards for design, exhibits, lectures, books and articles on Islamic Architecture and more currently studies on Film and Architecture. He received a 25-year design award given by the Utah Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for the Quad Project. More recently, his own house, a 1998 recipient of a Washingtonian/DC AIA Chapter design award, was published in the Italian Journal Il Projetto and the American Journal Residential Architect. Since 1980 Stanley often sought refuge to draw along the coast of Mt. Desert Island in Maine.
