Lucy Mason Maulsby

Visiting Scholar 2015-2016


Lucy Mason Maulsby

Maulsby is Associate Professor of Architectural History at the School of Architecture at Northeastern University. She received her M.Phil. in the History and Theory of Architecture from Cambridge University, United Kingdom, and her Ph.D. in Art and Architectural History at Columbia University. She is a founding member of the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC) at MIT.

While at the Center, Maulsby plans to complete her book The Architectural Legacy of Fascism in Postwar Italy. This book considers fascism’s legacy in Italy by tracing the architectural history of party headquarters — the building type most closely tied to the regime — from the late 1930s to the present. This project has been supported by a Wolfsonian-FIU Fellowship and a Franklin Research Grant.

Maulsby’s research focuses on architectural responses to modernization with a special emphasis on the relationships between architecture, urbanism and politics in Italy. Her book Fascism, Architecture and the Claiming of Modern Milan, 1923–43 (University of Toronto Press, 2014) was supported by a Whiting Fellowship and awarded a Mellon Author Award.
