Based upon research and his personal experience as a cameraman, he has offered seminars and studios addressing the relationship of cinema and architecture in Schools of Architecture in the United States, Puerto Rico, France and Italy and has produced several documentary films with his wife, Judith Dwan Hallet, an internationally recognized documentary filmmaker. He has lectured widely on these subjects in both the United States and Europe and his observations have appeared in major international and national journals of architecture.  Recognized as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects for his contributions to both architecture and architectural education, his work has been distinguished with 12 AIA design awards.
