Thomas Mical


Thomas Mical completed his professional M.Arch. at Harvard GSD with a thesis on “Blade Runner Urbanism for Cyber-City Tokyo”, and his first doctorate (in architectural theory) at Georgia Tech and Emory, which examined the influence of Nietzsche‘s Eternal Recurrence in Georgio de Chirico‘s ‘Metaphysical’ Urbanism. His second doctorate, in media-philosophy through the European Graduate School, is entitled “A Hegelian-Surrealism Account of the Genesis and Inversion of Impossible Worlds.” He has worked in the design firms of SOM Chicago and Murphy/Jahn, and is the author of Surrealism and Architecture (Routledge, 2004).
