Architecture looks to create new
ties to U.Va. community
In her three years as dean, Karen Van Lengen has sensed that
the Architecture School
is an underutilized and highly significant resource
It will take some years before the new arts precinct plan reconfigures
that part of the Grounds and makes visible the Architecture Schools
physical connection to the University.
the Architecture School has compared itself and related more to
its professional peers than to the University community, but Van
Lengen and the faculty are working to change that.
Envision meeting, we hope, will begin a process to repair that
relationship one that is vital in a university community
so tied to its own history through architecture, she said.
We look forward to partnering with the many University-wide
initiatives to begin this process.
Architecture School has already embraced the emphasis on ethics
seen elsewhere on Grounds and is working with the Institute
for Practical Ethics on a second annual symposium on ethics
in architecture April 5 and 6.
Envision sessions bring goals into focus
Arts & Sciences planner looks forward to more esprit de corps
