September 11, 2000 -- Boston-based architects Nader Tehrani and Monica Ponce de Leon will give the Michael Owens Jones Lecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture on Friday, Sept. 15, at 5 p.m. in Campbell Hall Room 153.

Tehrani and Ponce de Leon, principal partners in Office dA, will speak about their work, which includes urban design, restaurants, galleries, housing, interiors and furniture. They have received numerous awards for their work and have exhibited widely.

Their current work includes a master plan for the town of Wayland, Mass., which received a 1999 Progressive Architecture Design Award, and a renovation of Harvard Graduate School of Design offices.

In 1997, Ponce de Leon and Tehrani were awarded the Young Architects Award from the Architecture League of New York. They both teach architecture and urban design at Harvard Graduate School of Design.

The Michael Owens Jones lecture was created to feature the work of young and up-and-coming architects who are at the leading edge of architectural practice.
