James CARPENTER
Wednesday, 7 pm
Lone Star Auditorium, Maverick Activity Center, UT Arlington
Special Lecture presented with the School of Architecture, UTA

Glass is the most characteristic and telling material of modern architecture.
And as a master in working with glass, James Carpenter helps bridge the gap
between art and architecture. After RISD he worked with Corning Glass
Works on innovative products, then in 1978 began his independent studio
practice. A MacArthur Fellow and recipient of many major design awards,
Carpenter created the exquisite moving glass screen in Dallas' Rachofsky House.

Paul FIELD, Assoc. AIA
“The Art of Building – Rethinking the Role of Architect”
Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100

The original definition of architect as master builder has been compartmentalized
and the new role more narrowly defined as design professional.  Which role makes
more sense for the architect of tomorrow?

Magnolia Theatre, West Village

Opposite to the 'top down' concept of urban design is BETTER BLOCK, founded
in Dallas' Oak Cliff by Jason Roberts and Andrew Howard. The Better Block
project is a demonstration tool that temporarily re-visions an area to show the
potential to create a walkable, vibrant, neighborhood center. The idea and
the charrettes to realize it have quickly spread to cities like Memphis, St. Louis,
New York, and Boston. National media coverage includes NPR, the Washington
Post, and the New York Times.
