MPV chosen for Centenial Exhibition

UT Austin School of Architecture 100 Year Celebration in November


Various Architects’ Arts Alliance Mobile Performance Venue has been selected, along with 27 others, to represent the outstanding design talent and accomplishments of our alumni at the School’s centennial celebration, 100: Traces & Trajectories. VA partner Jim Dodson graduated from the UTSOA with a B.Arch in 1995. Many excellent projects were submitted for consideration, and many fields of design and planning were represented among the submissions. The exhibit curator, Texas Architect Editor Stephen Sharpe, was impressed by the overall quality of the submissions.

Centennial events begin on the evening of Friday, November 5, with a Dean’s Roundtable Discussion at the Charles Moore Foundation.  On Saturday, November 6, we will continue with a morning symposium of speakers, followed by an afternoon open house of all the School’s resources, studios, and exhibit spaces.  After the open house, alumnus Craig Dykers of Snohetta (our former colleague and boss) will serve as the keynote speaker. Then, all will congregate in the Goldsmith Hall Courtyard for a wine and cheese reception. The weekend’s events will end with a formal dinner in the beautiful Battle Hall reading room. The alumni exhibit will officially open on Monday, November  1st, and will be on display throughout the month of November in the School’s Mebane Gallery, located in Goldsmith Hall.
