Alejandro Zaera-Polo, the head of Alejandro Zaera-Polo & Maider Llaguno Architecture, today announced that he is stepping down as the Dean of Architecture at Princeton University's School of Architecture. Zaera-Polo was appointed to the position in 2012 having been a visiting lecturer at the school since 2008, but stepped down in order to devote more time to his research and professional activities. He will continue to serve as a professor at the school, and his predecessor Stan Allen will take up the role of Acting Dean until a permanent replacement is found.

Princeton's President Christopher L. Eisgruber reported the resignation to faculty at the School of Architecture in writing, expressing his gratitude to Zaera-Polo for his service and adding "I hope that all members of the school community will assist us in making this transition to new leadership as smooth as possible."

Stan Allen will lead the search for a new Dean of Architecture, accompanied by professors Christine Boyer, Paul Lewis and Guy Nordenson, as well as two selected graduate students who will serve as non-voting members of the committee.
