Biographical history

Professor Wheeler sees her research as a reflection of her transition from practicing architect to studio professor, and ultimately to architectural historian. How these three aspects of architecture—practice, pedagogy, and history—intersect is at the core of her work. Her current project, The Redemption of the Renaissance: Changing Perceptions of Renaissance Architecture in England, 1850-1914, addresses this most directly. Her teaching investigates these intersections in a seminar on the history and theory of architectural drawing, which studies the way drawing impacts architectural thought. She also teaches a seminar on the writings of great architects as well as the second half of the survey of the history of architecture
