Ten is enough

  • Comment

While the AA ponders its immediate future without a chairman, news of Mohsen Mostafavi's appointment as Dean of Architecture at Cornell has excited the Cornell Daily Sun. It notes Mohsen's exemplary qualificatiosn for the job, and that he was the first choice to replace Porus Olpadwala, according to provost Biddy Martin, who headed the selection committee. But Martin says she agrees with those members of the AA school who felt 10 years was long enough for a chair, and who either voted against Mohsen's automatic reappointment, or abstained in the recent election: 'We rarely have deans who serve 10 or more years.' Still, she also commented that 'I don't feel fazed in the least by what happened at the AA. I think's he's amazing and I think we're very lucky.'
