The lecture will discuss the work currently exhibited at UTSOA's Mebane Gallery. The exhibit displays the architectural work, drawings and sketches from Vincent Snyder’s 11-month residency resulting from his Rome Prize in Architecture (2014-2015). Much of the work includes three (3) Texas-based projects influenced by the varied contexts of Italy, Rome, and the Academy.
Vincent Snyder's academic research and teaching activities are primarily concerned with how specific cultural, contextual and constructional demands influence architectural design. Additionally, much of his current work reflects adaptive responses that investigate the role and appropriateness of various techniques of precision as either generative or refining modes of application. His firm, Vincent Snyder Architects, has been internationally published, exhibited, and recognized. His current professional work ranges in scale from residential to institutional. He is a registered architect in Texas, California and Nebraska.
