Global Architecture Brigade

Global Architecture Brigades UT Chapter members with children of the Santa Rosa community, who the secondary school will eventually benefit.

In August 2010, The University of Texas at Austin chapter of Global Architecture Brigades, consisting of a team of undergraduate students from the School of Architecture, embarked on a design competition with five other schools from across the nation. Their goal was to design a new school for the community of Santa Rosa, El Paraiso, Honduras. The new facilities would provide a venue for secondary education that was previously unavailable for students from thirteen surrounding communities and for public gatherings and celebrations.

After reviewing the submissions, the community members chose components from each university's proposal for the final design, including UT's rainwater harvesting system, the only such system proposed. Following the community's decision, the university chapters made a collaborative effort to integrate the various components into the final design.

In January 2011, the university chapters traveled to the community of Santa Rosa to begin construction on the school. During the course of the week, the college students combined efforts to dig trenches for foundation footings; manually saw and bend rebar for reinforcement; and mix, haul, and pour concrete to construct the mampostería (stone and mortar) foundation. The hands-on experience and involvement in the design-build process from beginning to end provided an invaluable educational experience in architecture, construction, and global outreach.

The Global Architecture Brigades UT team included: Cameron Benson, Judson Garwood, Melissa Jones, Megan Matthews, Nicole Melzer, Pedram Mireshghi, Miguel Ortiz, Justin Oscilowski, Francisca Pineda, Tyler Stowell, Parker Thompson, Sam Turner, Ross Wagner, Julie Williams, and Sam Williams.

UNDERGRADUATE PROSPECTUS WINS CASE GOLD AWARD

Detail from the School of Architecture's Undergraduate Program Prospectus, front and back sides of the B.Arch. + Plan II degree card.

The School of Architecture's Undergraduate Program Prospectus received a CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) Gold Award in the category of brochures/flyers/booklets.

Under the guidance of Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs Nichole Wiedemann, and with input from Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Programs Jeanne Crawford and Associate Academic Advisor Garrett Loontjer, the Prospectus was designed by former students Natalia Zieman [B.Arch. '10], Everett Hollander [B.Arch. '10], and Danny Saenz [B.Arch. '09].

The Prospectus is designed as a system of eleven 6" x 9" cards—each with graphics on one side and text on the reverse—that fit into a clear envelope for distribution. The school's undergraduate curricula, including architecture and interior design, are presented on folded cards, with additional cards containing information such as financial aid, resources, and the application process.

Assistant Dean for Development and External Relations Julie Hooper accepted the award for the school at an awards ceremony at the CASE District IV "Fusion" Conference in New Orleans on February 22.

CASE is a professional association serving educational institutions and the advancement professionals who work on their behalf in alumni relations, communications, development, marketing, and allied areas. CASE helps its members build stronger relationships with their alumni and donors, raise funds for campus projects, produce recruitment materials, market their institutions to prospective students, diversify the profession, and foster public support of education.

"Explorations, Defining Surface: an Exhibit of Fabrications Produced by A. Zahner Company"

"Zahner employees are visionary perfectionists. Their work raises the level of an architect's abilities. They are artistic and creative collaborators—from design to fabrication to installation—whose incredible abilities make architectural dreams realities." – Daniel Liebeskind

For more than a century, the A. Zahner Company has fabricated intricate metalwork for the built environment. The company has participated in the evolution from the tactile content of the artisan making components ranging from one-of-a-kind cornice shapes to the highly engineered shapely forms of a Gehry Partners design. In this evolution, Zahner technicians and engineers have successfully married the ability of fine crafted detail with a digital definition of three-dimensional form. The challenge has been to interpret the information conveyed by the designer and instill a parametric relationship. The relationship involves not only the interface of the various parts, but also how the machines that cut, shape, and pierce these parts interpret the design. This refined definition can be translated into the final product to produce a "machined" appearance and to enhance design intent. (Text adapted from Bill Zahner's article in Manufacturing Material Effects: Rethinking Design and Making in Architecture, page 68.)

This exhibit, "Explorations, Defining Surface," features material investigations undertaken by Zahner for several different projects. Through the manipulation of plate metal, Zahner is able to produce a specific articulation of "surface" in support of an architectural concept. The utilization of parametric modeling and translation of that parametric data to manufacturing machinery, all while working in collaborative design partnerships with architects, has set the engineers and fabricators at Zahner apart from other manufacturers. The company has worked with major architectural firms such as Herzog & de Meuron, Morphosis, REX, Snøhetta, Zaha Hadid, Studio Daniel Libeskind, Gehry Partners, and FOA.

Zahner is an internationally acclaimed engineering and fabrication company best known for the use of metal in the world of art and architecture. Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Zahner employs nearly 200 craftsmen and engineers in its offices and two plants.

Sponsored by the University Co-op Materials Resource Center and AIA Austin. Organized and curated by Sydney Mainster, Materials Lab Curator, with faculty support from Charlton Lewis and Joyce Rosner.

Sutton Hall 3.128 (Monday-Friday, 8:00-5:00)

"Capturing Light and Time: Pinhole Cameras and Photographs"

The cameras and photographs on display represent work organized around the theme of light and time in architecture that was produced in fall 2010 by fifth-semester architecture students in Lecturer Judy Birdsong's topic-based design studio.

As a means of introducing students to fundamental principles of light, each student constructed a pinhole camera, essentially a simple box with a single small aperture that employs the same optical principles as the camera obscura. Despite the simple program and inflexible constraints, the result was an array of inventive (and occasionally decorative) products that ranged from straightforward, but beautifully designed shells, to those that allowed for multiple views, multiple exposures, and interchangeable focal lengths. The photographs chronicle the efforts of the students to record the passage of time through the agency of light, the assigned subject of the second exercise of the semester.

CELEBRATING ROSEMIN GOPAUL'S 30 YEARS AT THE SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE

Above: Jim Szkotak [MSCRP '83] and Rosemin Gopaul. Szkotak started as a student in the CRP Program the same year Rosemin joined the staff. Below: Rosemin's retirement reception, south lawn of Sutton Hall, February 23, hosted by UTSOA graduate students.

On February 23, graduate students hosted a reception celebrating "30 Years of Rosemin Gopaul at the School of Architecture" on the occasion of her retirement from the position of Program Coordinator for Graduate Affairs. The event was spearheaded by students Caroline Emerson, Andrew Fulcher, and Erika Huddleston and Edna Ledesma [M.Arch. '09].

Dean Fritz Steiner sponsored the reception to provide an opportunity for current and former students to say goodbye to Rosemin. It was held on the south lawn of Sutton Hall in the grassy space outside Rosemin's office window.

Many current students and alumni attended, and a special gift was presented to Rosemin. Designed by Erika Huddleston, with input from the other student organizers, the gift was an 11" x 15" print in a white wood frame. In Huddleston's words, "The print was designed with 30 circles to symbolize Rosemin's years of service. All but one circle are bisected to symbolize the unbelievable 59 classes she graduated during her tenure. The circles are colorful because Rosemin's office always had colorful interesting objects d'art in it, and she seems to love color."

The following day, current and former faculty and staff honored Rosemin with a reception in the Dean's Conference Room. Several of the many graduate advisors Rosemin worked with during her 30 years, Terry Kahn, Richard Cleary, Larry Speck, and Ming Zhang, as well as Dean Steiner, former dean Hal Box, Associate Professor Emeritus Peter Coltman, and other attendees, shared meaningful stories.

ALUMNI CONNECTIONS

ALUMNI UPDATES

Patrick B. Davis, Jr.

Patrick B. Davis, Jr. [B.Arch. '74], FAIA, has been elected to the College of Fellows of The American Institute of Architects. The Jury of Fellows selected Davis because of his notable contributions to the advancement of his profession and for the professional excellence he has brought to the practice of architecture, particularly in the area of service to society.

Fellowship in the AIA is the highest honor an architect member can receive. The AIA has more than 80,000 members; only a small percentage, fewer than 2,700 members, have the distinction of using FAIA after their names.

Davis has nearly four decades of experience as an architect specializing in all aspects of healthcare planning and design. He is employed with CMH Architects, Inc., in Birmingham, Alabama, as Vice President of Healthcare Services.

As a citizen architect, Davis has long been involved in his community, serving on local hospital and city planning boards.

Davis has helped create legislative coalitions for the design and building industries to advance their shared interests in Alabama. He and his wife established The Patrick and Judy Davis Endowed Scholarship Award at Auburn University to encourage and support veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewomen to further their educations.

On a national level, Davis was an advocate for the design of the Vietnam Memorials, testifying to the placement of the Frederick Hart sculpture of "The Three Servicemen."

Davis says, "This journey began for me in 1974 as National President of Student AIA. A journey like this could not have been successful without the complete support of my spouse, Judy, whom I met in Washington, D.C., when I was student president and she worked for the AIA research corporation. I am both humbled and thrilled by this most special of all AIA recognitions."

Soren Simonsen and Lars Stanley. Photos by Justin Hackworth and Kenny Braun.

Soren Simonsen [B.Arch. '92] and Lars Stanley [M.Arch. '03], FAIA, LEED AP, are featured in the January 2011 edition of Architect magazine, in the article, "The Multitaskers." Author John Gendall interviewed four professionals who have gone beyond "delivering buildings," extending their practices into other domains.

In Simonsen's case, he sees himself as a placemaker and policy maker. He is a partner with Community Studio, a practice dedicated to neighborhood-based urban design, and is one year into his second four-year term on the city council of Salt Lake City.

Stanley is a craftsman who turned to metal artisanry to diversify his practice. Through his firm, Lars Stanley Metalworks, he collaborates with a range of architects and clients looking for custom-metal details.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND SUSTAINABILITY: PATRICK BRESNAN

Children of the village of El Tanque, Nicaragua. Photo by Patrick Bresnan. The photo is part of the "El Tanque y El Agua: Water Collection in a Nicaraguan Refugee Village, a documentary photo and video exhibit at the Austin Public Library Terrazas Branch. The exhibit is part of an effort to bring awareness to World Water Day on March 22.

UTSOA Sustainable Design student Patrick Bresnan has a photography exhibit up through April 30 at Austin Public Library Terrazas Branch, located at 1105 East Cesar Chavez. The exhibit is called "El Tanque y El Agua: Water Collection in a Nicaraguan Refugee Village," documenting Nicaraguan villagers who had to trek miles to obtain fresh water. This collection of imagery was originally used to advocate for the villagers, who now have access to a safe water supply due in part to the donations raised with the help of these photos.

Bresnan was recently selected by curators from the Menil Collection in Houston to be in the new exhibition "Nowhere Near Here: New Photographic Work by Texas Artists," featuring 14 multi-disciplinary artists from across the state. "Nowhere Near Here" is the fourth exhibition in the Talent in Texas series. It is a participating exhibit in the statewide Texas Biennial 2011.

Bresnan's work is exhibited under the moniker "Otis Ike" with his wife, Ivete Lucas, a student in the UT Austin MFA Program.
