Inaugural symposium to look at the American college

An upcoming symposium will examine the unique interplay of architecture and landscape of American campuses and its role in creating shared values, expectations, activities and loyalties. The Architecture School’s first biennial Woltz Symposium, “Space, Social Identity and the American Campus,” will be held Nov. 2 and 3 in Campbell Hall room 153 and is free and open to the public.

The first day will tackle the relationship between social identity and the campus form of several colleges, including U.Va., Vassar College, Tuskeegee, Yale and Brandeis universities. The second day will address contemporary design on American campuses, featuring talks and panel discussions by architecture historians, architects and landscape architects.

Paul Turner, Stanford University professor and author of Campus: An American Planning Tradition, will give a lecture on “The American Campus: What Does It Mean?” on Nov. 2 at 5 p.m.

A complete schedule and list of speakers is available at http://arch.virginia.edu/~sch-docs/announce/

The biennial Woltz Symposium is endowed by the late John Elliot Woltz, father of U.Va architecture alumnus Thomas Woltz.
