Professor Joy Monice Malnar, AIA, retired from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on January 15, 2017, after nearly two decades on the faculty of the School of Architecture. Upon retirement, she was awarded emeritus status by the university’s Board of Trustees. Malnar’s career exemplifies the value of situating an architecture school within an arts college at a research university. In her scholarship, her experience as a licensed architect was carefully integrated with other disciplines—some far beyond architectural studies—to fashion a specialization that inquires into the sensory experience of the built environment.
