His lecture also will feature the work of his prior firm, Della Valle + Bernheimer, which won the Architectural League of New York Emerging Voices prize in 2007.

Throughout his more than 20-year career, Bernheimer's diverse architecture portfolio of public, institutional, nonprofit and private work for a diverse clientele has garnered acclaim from numerous publications such as The New York Times, Metropolis, Architecture and Interior Design. His work has received recognition from the American Institute of Architects New York City chapter, Architect magazine's Annual Design Review and the Boston Society of Architects.

His best-known works include the renovation of legendary architect Paul Rudolph's penthouse apartment and office in New York City, his innovative condominium and affordable housing projects in New York City, and his award-winning installation at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Okla.

Bernheimer Architecture's portfolio includes affordable and high-end residential housing, commercial, hospitality, mixed-use spaces, public architectural projects, furniture design and art installations. His firm's forward-thinking, sustainable and unique designs have won awards from organizations such as the Boston Society of Architects, the American Institute of Architects and ARCHITECT magazine.

In addition to his academic work, Bernheimer has served as a visiting professor or lecturer at universities across the country including the Rhode Island School of Design, San Francisco Institute for Planning and Urban Research and Columbia University.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
