(June 20, 2013) -- The architects and contractors of the new roundabout entry signs at the Main Campus of The University of Texas at San Antonio received an award for design and craftsmanship. The award was presented June 14 at a ceremony in Austin.
The Central Texas Masonry Contractors presented the 25th annual Golden Trowel Award to representatives of the project's general contractor, Bartlett Cocke; masonry contractor Rudd and Adams; and Barnes Gromatzky Kosarek Architects.
The regional Golden Trowel Competition and Awards recognize outstanding masonry design by architects and craftsmanship by masonry contractors. The project now will be entered in a statewide competition.
"The two new monument signs at the Peace Boulevard entrance to the campus signal a stronger presence of the campus within the city and therefore strengthen the identity of the campus to the community," said J. Douglas Lipscomb, UTSA architect and director of facilities planning and development.
According to Lipscomb, the signs "establish a gateway celebrating arrival to the campus and reinforce the campus sense of place."
He said students seem to have embraced the campus gateways as markers and symbols of the university, judging from the fact that many of them use the signs as backdrops for end-of-the year and graduation photos with classmates.
This high school student exhibit features images, videos, interviews and writings that the students learned about while participating in "The Will to Adorn: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity."
