Back to the Future!

This weekend, April 8-10, Architecture Society invites alums back to the Colleges to take part in an Alumni Symposium for this year's Architecture Weekend. The weekend opens with a forum at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8, in the Geneva Room, featuring Bob Trempe '97, Evangelos Limpantoudis '01, Jordan Kauffman '02, and Rachael Kaplan '04. The alumni will share the exciting and unique accomplishments they have experienced since graduating from HWS and give insight into what upcoming graduates can expect from the world of architecture today. The Architecture Society will lead a discussion on the new building projects scheduled for ground-breaking in the next several years. As the number of building projects on campus increases, the campus community has an opportunity to discuss their vision for the campus and its growth. Will great architecture be a part of these dreams? Will the campus endorse good design as a means to inspire and to move its inhabitants?

On Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the weekend continues along the theme of campus building projects with a design competition at Houghton House. Four teams, each led by an alum, will attempt to stir life (and good architecture) into an existing program for a proposed building. A barbecue following the competition, from 5-7 p.m., will end the weekend, while judges critique the completed projects.

Come join in a fun and exciting weekend of architecture and alums, and delve back in time to examine the future of architecture, here at HWS and in the greater community.
