Carol Buhrmann has many years of experience teaching architecture, most recently at Florida Atlantic University and U.C. Berkeley. Her current research explores the connection between architecture and film and has advanced a theory of Time Diagrams, which uses film analysis as a methodology for site analysis. She has an M.S. Architecture degree from Columbia University and a B-Arch from Cornell University. She was a Fulbright Lecturer in 1996 at the Urals Academy of Architecture in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and returned to Ekaterinburg in subsequent years to conduct funded research. Her topic in Russia is Soviet architecture in Ekaterinburg and Uralmash, 1923 -1932, Moscow’s influence on these industrial cities and the varied success in advancing a Soviet socialist ideal through architecture.
