Ultan Byrne

Ultan Byrne is a Doctoral Candidate in Architecture at Columbia GSAPP. Before joining GSAPP, Ultan spent five years as an appointed faculty member at the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, where he taught a combination of seminars, studios, and lecture courses. His writing has appeared in numerous publications, from the Proceedings of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture to the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians.

Ultan holds an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree with High Distinction (with Majors in Philosophy and Architecture) and a Master of Architecture degree, both from the University of Toronto. During his Masters studies, Ultan was awarded the Frederick Coates Scholarship, the Harry B. Kohl Award, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Honor Roll, and the Toronto Architectural Guild Medal.

Ultan’s current work focuses on questions of media and communications in the government architecture of the United States during the 19th century. In his spare time, he enjoys writing computer software. Recent examples include the development of a ‘spatial chat’ alternative to Zoom early in 2020 [mmmurmur.com] and ongoing work on computational-art-book editions of the Homeric epics.
