(April 6, 2010)--The UTSA College of Architecture will host Tatiana Bilbao as the last presenter in a three-part lecture series and exhibition at 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 7 in the Buena Vista Street Building Theater (1.326) at the Downtown Campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Bilbao will speak on "Concrete, Steel, Brick, Aluminum, Wood and Paint: The Architecture of Tatian Bilbao 2004-2010." Bilbao is a renowned architect from Mexico City, and her trip to San Antonio is a joint venture of the College of Architecture, UTSA Mexico Center and Instituto Cultural de Mexico in San Antonio. An exhibit of Bilbao's work as well as an exhibit of contemporary Mexican fine art will be displayed at the Downtown Campus Gallery.
Bilbao created the studio Tatiana Bilbao/mx.a in 2004 and has completed projects in Mexico, China and Spain. The studio's objective is to address contemporary society and architecture, research and urban studies including a department devoted to cultural projects such as exhibitions, lectures and publications.
"This lecture series provides us the forum to present renowned practitioners from disciplines related to urban planning and the built environment," said John Murphy, dean of the UTSA College of Architecture. "We are able to present the College of Architecture at UTSA to the city of San Antonio as an emerging global player in architecture education."
The lecture series hosted major names in the world of architecture. The two previous presenters were Jeanne Gang, speaking on "Assembly as Medium," and Gustavo Araoz, speaking on "The (Uncertain) Future of Our Cultural Heritage."
