Quoting from Dean Tanzer’s email to the A-School email list-serve:
I am very pleased to report that this morning Inaki Alday accepted our offer to become the next chair of the Department of Architecture. … Early next week we will send out a more complete announcement, but because I know many of you have followed this search closely I wanted to let you know the results as soon as possible. Thank you for your commitment to the process and to making this and all the School’s searches this year successful. I hope you will enjoy a well-deserved rest in the summer months to come. For those of you about to graduate, congratulations in advance!
