(Nov. 13, 2007)--Edward Burian, a new associate professor in the UTSA College of Architecture, will formally introduce himself to the university in the final installment of the College of Architecture's fall semester Colloquium series at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 in the Monterey Building Architecture Gallery (1.108) at the Downtown Campus.

Burian's lecture, "Learning from the Architecture of Mexico: Edward R. Burian, Architect, Writings, Buildings and Projects," is co-sponsored by the UTSA Mexico Center. His talk will focus on the principles and ideas of a variety of undervalued works of Mexican architecture that inform his teaching, research and professional practice.

His books and writings focus on the 19th and 20th century architecture of Mexico, particularly the modern architecture and ubanism of Northern Mexico.

Burian earned a bachelor's degree in architectural education from the University of Southern California and worked for a number of notable architectural firms in Los Angeles before completing his graduate degree in architecture at Yale.

He opened a private practice upon graduation and was licensed in Arizona and California. Burian wrote and edited "Modernity and the Architecture of Mexico," (University of Texas Press, 1997), which was translated into Spanish as "Modernidad y arquitectura en México," (Gustavo Gili, 1998).

He received a Graham Foundation grant to complete his forthcoming book, "The Architecture and Cities of Northern Mexico: 1821-2006," and has planned an additional book, "Contemporary Regional Residential Architecture for the American Southwest."
