Marc J. Neveu graduated with a professional degree in architecture in 1995 and began working at Kallmann, McKinnell, & Wood Architects in Boston. After three years there he traveled to Montreal where he completed a post-professional M.Arch in the History and Theory program at McGill University. Following a few years of professional work back in Boston, Neveu returned to Montreal to pursue studies toward a Ph.D. His dissertation, entitled Architectural Lessons of Carlo Lodoli (1690-1764), was named to the Dean’s Honor List in 2006. It focuses on the origins of architectural education in the Veneto during the eighteenth century. The dissertation discusses Carlo Lodoli’s bi-fold understanding of indole (inherent nature)—with respect to meaning of materials and architectural education—and includes the first ever translation of Lodoli’s fables, Apologhi Immaginati (1787), into English. While working on his dissertation Marc was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for study in Venice and a Collection Research Grant at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Neveu has taught at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and as a Visiting Faculty member at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. In autumn 2007 Neveu began work in the Department of Architecture at Cal Poly where he teaches history courses and studio. He has lectured and published on issues concerning architectural pedagogy, both within the historical and contemporary context.
