(March 26, 2010)--The UTSA College of Architecture will present Gustavo Araoz speaking on "The (Uncertain) Future of Our Cultural Heritage" at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 31 in the Buena Vista Theater (1.326) at the Downtown Campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

As the second of three lectures and exhibitions in a spring series, Araoz' talk will be of great local interest because of the nomination of the San Antonio missions for World Heritage Site status.

Araoz is president of the International Committee on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), an organization founded in 1965 to create an international network of professionals and supporters of heritage conservation. ICOMOS has grown to become the pre-eminent global historic preservation organization. Headquartered in Paris, France, it has 9,500 members throughout the world, forming the only global interdisciplinary and multicultural network of heritage experts and supporters. ICOMOS was designated the official adviser to United Nations educational, scientific and cultural organizations on the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.

The spring series will close at 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 7 with famed Mexico City architect Tatiana Bilbao speaking on "Concrete, Steel, Brick, Aluminum, Wood and Paint." Bilbao's trip to San Antonio is a joint venture of the UTSA College of Architecture, UTSA Mexico Center and the Instituto Cultural de Mexico in San Antonio. In conjunction with Bilbao's lecture, an exhibit of her work will be displayed at the Downtown Campus gallery in the Durango Building.

"This lecture series provides us exciting opportunities to present the College of Architecture at UTSA to the city of San Antonio as an emerging global player in architecture education," said John Murphy, dean of the College of Architecture.
