EXPLORE UT: THE CHAIR'S REPORT

In the Architectural Conservation Lab, young explorers learned about historic buildings and tried to identify historic paint colors using a microscope.


Explore UT visitors complete a puzzle created by Josh Conrad and other Student Historic Preservation Association members for the occasion.

School of Architecture Dean Fritz Steiner served as this year's Explore UT chair. He offers the following report on the event.

"On Saturday, March 7, the university hosted its 10th annual Explore UT. As this year's chairman, I had the unique opportunity to watch this impressive event come together over months of planning and preparation.

"The individuals involved in making this day a success numbered in the thousands. From the core group that handles the campus-wide logistics to the thousands of students, faculty, and staff who volunteered their time, it's an amazing organizational feat.

"This year's open house was the largest ever. We had 328 school buses from 40 school districts across the state bringing more than 12,000 parents and children to campus for a day of fun and learning. Two notable additions to this year's guest list were busloads of parents and kids from Fort Hood and College Station. With more than 50,000 attendees overall, the campus was brimming with smiling faces and laugher.

"Mirroring the success of the university-wide event, the School of Architecture also witnessed record crowds. The Goldsmith courtyard was filled with children crawling through a maze, building skyscrapers with wooden blocks, and jousting with Styrofoam noodles.

"Students lined up five deep to design their own t-shirts; dozens of visitors toured our gallery, the materials resource lab and lighting lab, the conservation lab, and our visual resources collection; parents and children learned how to design with digital tools and use an advanced GIS computer mapping system; and families learned about historic architecture and sustainable architecture. In a session on architecture majors and study abroad programs, the wall-to-wall crowd came from as far away as Connecticut and Alaska.

"I want to thank all of those who participated in Explore UT. There are far too many names to mention. But the collaborative effort between students, faculty, and staff is truly what made this day a success."

2009 GREAT PLACES AWARDS

A key feature of Snøhetta’s Norwegian National Opera project are its sloping marble roof terraces, which provide a year-round public platform at the water’s edge. They invite visitors to explore the building structure and associated artworks, as well as afford views of the city and the fjord.


The Vision 2030: West Dallas Gateway plan offers a vision for radically redefining the future of a city that has previously looked only outward.

Seven projects have been named winners of the 2009 Great Places Awards. The Great Places Awards reflect the related missions of the program’s sponsors: Places, the Environmental Design Research Association, and Metropolis magazine. There were two design awards, three planning awards, one research award, and one book award. The judging took place February 27 and 28 at The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture.

Winner of one of the Design Awards (for completed projects that demonstrate excellence as human environments) is the Norwegian National Opera by Snøhetta AS. Projects architects are UTSOA alumnus Craig Dykers [B.Arch. '85], Tarald Lundevall, and Kjetil Thorsen.

Snøhetta’s winning entry embraces its site at the water’s edge and provides a magnificent setting for urban life. The jury praised it both for being an outstanding example of design in service to the public realm and for its exquisite realization in artistic and technical detail. As a masterful response to a complicated site, it is both a building and a landscape.

Winner of one of the Planning Awards (for projects that make proposals for the future design, use, or management of a place) is “Vision 2030: West Dallas Gateway, Strategic Framework Initiative,” University of Texas at Austin, Dallas Urban Laboratory. Associate Professor Dean J. Almy is Dallas Urban Laboratory Director.

The West Dallas Gateway plan offers a vision for an area that has suffered from economic decline and characteristic underutilization. The area is located directly across the Trinity River from the downtown core; its redevelopment could have a greater impact for the betterment of Dallas than that of any other location along the corridor. Through a program of design-based research, the plan attempts to illustrate how careful integration of programmatic density, landscape infrastructure, and transit, along with public amenities such as new schools, could create a vibrant new inner-city residential district.

Jurors praised the project for its goal of radically redefining the future of a city that has previously looked only outward. Dallas recognizes that continued suburban expansion is not sustainable, and that new levels of urban density, infrastructural connectivity, and public amenity are needed to adjust to this future reality. By refocusing on the forgotten spaces at the center, the plan will help change the city’s image of wasteful sunbelt sprawl.

In its twelfth year, the The Great Places Awards program is distinguished by its interdisciplinary focus, concern for human factors in the design of the built environment, and commitment to promoting links between design research and practice.

SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE ADVISORY COUNCIL ENDOWED EXCELLENCE FUND

School of Architecture Advisory Council members.

At their spring 2008 meeting, members of the School of Architecture's Advisory Council voted to increase their annual gift over a 5-year period to create a new endowed Dean's Excellence Fund at the school. Excellence funds are unrestricted program endowments, either school-wide or for a certain program, and are one of the most important sources of funding as they allow for maximum flexibility in use for faculty and students.

After the first year of Advisory Council giving, total gifts from council members have exceeded $25,000, allowing us to formally establish the School of Architecture Advisory Council Endowed Excellence Fund. Over the next four years, the additional gifts from the council will add to the corpus of this endowment fund, with a projected fundraising goal of over $150,000!

"Perceiving Space: The Hal Box and Logan Wagner Collection of Mexican Architecture and Urban Design"

Every summer from 1985 to 1996, with the assistance of volunteer teams from Earthwatch, W.L. Moody, Jr. Centennial Professor Emeritus in Architecture and former dean of the School of Architecture Hal Box, FAIA, and Dr. Logan Wagner [M.Arch. '79; Ph.D. in Latin American Studies, with an architectural history concentration, '97] explored, photographed, measured, and made scale drawings of over ninety towns in Mexico. The collection of over 8,000 slides taken during this period was donated to the School of Architecture's Visual Resources Collection (VRC).

The exhibit highlights a selection of images from a collection that documents communal open spaces built in Mexico from 2000 B.C. to the present, concentrating on the 16th and 17th century fusion of Mesoamerican and European architecture and town planning. Contained in the collection are images of sacred open spaces formed by ancient pyramids and the plazas, atrios, cloisters, and towns' central plazas.

The Hal Box and Logan Wagner Collection of Mexican Architecture and Urban Design will be available in ARTstor in spring 2009 and as part of the VRC's online Image Collection.

FACULTY SCHOLARSHIP

The River North District Master Plan for central San Antonio, Texas, created in an effort led by Moule & Polyzoides and Black + Vernooy.

The River North District Master Plan for central San Antonio, Texas, created in an effort led by Moule & Polyzoides and Black + Vernooy, provides a guide for the reinvention of a long neglected light industrial area into a vibrant mixed-use urban neighborhood. On March 19, the plan was adopted, with San Antonio Mayor Phil Hardberger calling it “a perfect compliment to the work on the river.” ;The very next day, the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) announced that River North has received a CNU 2009 Charter Award, which recognizes excellence in sustainable urbanism. The CNU Design Award will be presented at CNU 17 in Denver, June 13, 2009.

In 2008, Black + Vernooy principal Professor Sinclair Black was a CNU Athena Medal recipient. Named for the goddess, defender of the city, weaver of fabric, the Athena Medal recognizes the legacy of pioneers who laid the groundwork for New Urbanism.

Associate Professor Werner Lang is featured on an EarthSky podcast concerning building skins and use of our natural resources. Click here to listen to the podcast or see the transcript.

Assistant Professor Smilja Milovanovic-Bertram has received a MacDowell Colony Fellowship for the summer.

The oldest artists' colony in the U.S., The MacDowell Colony was founded in Peterborough, New Hampshire, in 1907. The Colony's mission today, as it was then, is to nurture the arts by offering creative individuals of the highest talent an inspiring environment in which to produce enduring works of the imagination. More than 250 writers, composers, visual artists, photographers, printmakers, filmmakers, architects, interdisciplinary artists, and those collaborating on creative works come to the Colony each year from all parts of the United States and abroad. Colonists receive room, board, and the exclusive use of a studio. In addition to ideal working conditions, artists-in-residence benefit from the experience of living in a community of exceptional artists.

Recent MacDowell Fellows from the school include Professor Anthony Alofsin, Professor Steven Moore, and Assistant Professor Liam O'Brien.

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology recently published a monograph by Dr. Danilo Udovicki-Selb titled "The Evolution of Soviet Architectural Culture in the First Decade of Stalin's Perestroika: 1928-1938" in its Trondheim Studies on East European Cultures and Societies publication series. The monograph features numerous photographs taken by the author in the Northern Caucasus of Moses Ginzburg's virtually forgotten 1938 masterpiece, the Sanatorium in Kislovodsk; as well as never published interiors of the 1937 Palace of Culture in Moscow. It is a contribution that substantially complements and modifies the views expressed in 1994 by High D. Hudson, among others, in the only, albeit important pioneering book available on this issue. The text is based on new material from the Soviet government, Moscow Party, Central Committee, Politburo and Kaganovi papers, the Moscow Architectural Museum, Lenin Library, and the Russian archives for the arts and literature. The publication follows from a lecture Dr. Udovicki presented at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim in December 2008.

Dr. Udovicki will also present a paper at the Politecnico di Milano symposium, "20th Century Great Events: Architecture, Planning and Urban Development," April 2 and 3. His paper will discuss a decade of competitions for the extension of Paris in preparation for the International Expo of 1937.

Exterior view, The Grove restaurant, Houston, Texas; designed by Larry Speck, Page Southerland Page.

The new Grove restaurant by Professor Larry Speck of Page Southerland Page is featured in the March 2009 edition of Architect magazine. The restaurant is part of the Discovery Green development in Houston, a new, 12-acre downtown park that features a lake, dog parks, a playground, public art, and an amphitheater.

The article explains, “architect Larry Speck designed the 10,000-square-foot building to meet a goal of LEED Gold certification, as set by the Discovery Green Conservancy, the nonprofit responsible for the park's development and maintenance. The restaurateurs initially were unenthusiastic about a modern building, according to Speck, because they thought it wouldn't do for the kind of gracious dining experience they had in mind. But the architect convinced them that modern construction would better connect with the park and with the goals of sustainable design.[...] The building is modern in all the right ways—less a polemical statement than a mature example of placemaking.”

The entire article by Bruce C. Webb, along with stunning photographs of The Grove by Eric Laignel, can be viewed at Architect magazine online.

STUDIO MEXICO 2009

UT and Mexican students attend a presentation at the Cárcamo de Dolores (Dolores Well), a water distribution station decorated with murals by Diego Rivera.

Associate Professor Juan Miró reports that Studio Mexico 2009 students have just returned from a four-week trip throughout Mexico. In its eighteenth consecutive year, the program is a comprehensive traveling studio that offers students the opportunity to experience Mexican culture, architecture, and landscape by complementing the design studio with traveling, drawing, and a rigorous exploration of the rich legacy of pre-Columbian, colonial, and modern architecture. The program also includes an enriching interaction with Mexican students from leading universities.

This year the studio is working on the design of a water museum to be located in Chapultepec Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world in the heart of Mexico City. The scope of the project includes important water storing and distribution infrastructure, including a pumping station decorated with fantastic murals by Diego Rivera and four cisterns 100 meters in diameter. Nearby are several museums, large fountains, and two lakes.

During the first week in Mexico City, our students met the students from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and Universidad Veracruzana, explored the site, and attended lectures by officials involved in the master plan of the park and by landscape architect Mario Schetjnan. They had a preliminary review of their schemes with their Mexican counterparts, first in Veracruz at the end of the second week, and another one back in Mexico City at the end of the third week.

During their travels, the students visited works by Luis Barragán, Ricardo Legorreta, and Teodoro González de León, among others. They also visited work and met with leading contemporary architects Isaac Broid, Javier Sanchez, Mario Schetjnan, and Daniel Alvarez at their houses or studios. They also visited the studio of sculptor Jorge Yazpik.

The itinerary included the colonial cities of Jalapa, Tlaxcala, and San Cristóbal de las Casas and the pre-Columbian sites of Teotihuacan, El Tajin, Cuajilote, Tonina, Palenque, Bonampak, and Yaxchilan. They finished their trip in Villahermosa, where they visited the Park Museum of La Venta, an excellent example of an outdoor museum integrated in a park setting. Mexican students will come to Austin in May to present together with UT students in the final review.

ALPHA RHO CHI ACHIEVEMENTS

Alpha Rho Chi President Jessie Weber presented the following report on the chapter's significant achievements this year:

"The Dinocrates chapter of Alpha Rho Chi has been working hard this year within the school. We are a co-ed social-professional fraternity for architecture and the allied arts, and have been working to boost our professional and philanthropic relationships and endeavors. As you may know, members of our chapter attended our 62nd National Convention in St. Louis this past week. In attendance were President Jessie Weber (third-year architecture), Vice President Amanda Prins (third-year architecture), Clerk Megan Sanguinetti (third-year architecture), Francisca Pineda (first-year architecture), Christine Adame (first-year architecture), Jordan Vann (fifth-year architecture), and Vilmar Morgan [B.Arch. '08].

In addition to attending business meetings, networking with alumni and active members from around the country, listening to the keynote address by Robert Ivy (editor-in-chief of Architectural Record and honorary brother), we were recognized in several important ways.

"I am proud to announce that our Dinocrates Chapter of Alpha Rho Chi has once again received national recognition from the National Grand Council.

"For the second year in a row, we have been awarded the George 'So' Whitten Scholastic Achievement Award. The award recognizes the chapter that has demonstrated the most outstanding academic and professional accomplishments of each school year. Our collective GPA, academic awards (such as University Honors and Design Excellence), and professional achievements (like student publication in a major journal) helped earn us this title.

"We were also awarded the National Service Award. This award was created to recognize leadership, encourage community service, and foster the personal and professional growth of out members. It is intended to recognize the organized activity of an Active Chapter or Alumni Association in performing a service in the public good. Our continuing efforts with the Recycling/Reusing program within the UTSOA caught the attention of the Grand Council.

"I am so proud of our Dinocrates chapter for working together to win both of the awards given to individual chapters!"

STRUCTURES FOR INCLUSION CONFERENCE
