The details

John Shannon Hendrix (born 1959) is an architectural historian and philosopher who has written and lectured extensively on the subjects of architecture, art, philosophy, aesthetics, psychoanalysis, science, culture and history. Much of his work focuses on connections among those topics, such as interactions of vision, perception, and sensation with the arts and architecture, the relationships between psychoanalysis and architecture, physical sciences and architecture, and philosophy and architecture. His career focuses on research and writing about "mostly European precedents in architecture and philosophy, for the purpose of suggesting alternatives to the practice of architecture and philosophy at the beginning of the twenty-first century." He has taught at Roger Williams University since 1999. He was Professor of Architectural History at the University of Lincoln, Lincoln, England from 2007 through 2015, Lecturer, History of Art and Visual Culture at the Rhode Island School of Design from 2004 through 2010, and has been lecturer at John Cabot University in Rome, the University of Connecticut, Rhode Island College, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He earned his B.F.A. in painting at the Art Institute of Chicago, M.A. at the Rhode Island School of Design, M.Arch. at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Ph.D. in architecture at Cornell University.
