UTSA School of Architecture celebrates 25 years

(May 10, 2005)--The UTSA School of Architecture (SOA) celebrated the 25th anniversary of its degree programs at a May 5 banquet in the Durango Building Southwest Room at the UTSA Downtown Campus.

More than 100 attended the event representing the UTSA administration, faculty, alumni, SOA Advisory Council and local design professionals.

A highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of the first SOA Outstanding Alumni Awards to Alicia Trevino, 1986 architecture graduate, and Charlie Kane, 1994 interior design graduate.

San Antonio Express-News columnist Mike Greenberg was presented the SOA Livable City Award for his contributions to the public's understanding of environments built for healthier living.

The UTSA School of Architecture, housed at the Downtown Campus, takes advantage of a unique intellectual, educational and design culture in the setting of South Texas and the borderlands region of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.

San Antonio's collage of cultures and memories provides a unique laboratory for the study of the confluence of design, history, cultures and ethnicity. The architecture and interior design programs strive to equip students with the necessary skills and attitudes to be effective practitioners, the ability to judge and the confidence to ask the right questions.

SOA plans to consolidate all of its facilities this fall in the recently acquired Monterey Building on Frio Street across from the campus.
