Ou Prepares for Architecture Week; Keller to Note Design Philosophy of One Bell Central


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Students in the University of Oklahoma's College of Architecture are planning a full slate of public events for Architecture Week, April 7-12.

A series of lectures, films and an architectural exhibit are among some of the activities being scheduled. Members of OU's Student Board hope these events will be helpful in attracting public recognition for the college while strengthening ties among architecture students, faculty and professionals.

"Because we have students scattered through various buildings on campus, we wanted to do something to bring them together to foster communication," said Mark Gandy, president of the board.

Lectures on the aspects of preparing architectural work for presentation to clients will be presented by two notable speakers, Ernest Burden and Mike W. Lin. Times and locations for the lectures will be announced soon.

Burden is founder and publisher of The Communicator's Advisor, a bimonthly newsletter and advisory service focusing on interview strategies, client criteria, techniques for architectural presentations and the use of print media. Lin teachs design and graphic delineation at Kansas State University and is a recognized leader in architectural rendering methodology.

Five films in the series "Understanding Cities" produced by Edmund Bacon, a well-known city planner and speaker, will be shown at various times during Architecture Week. The first film will be shown at 1:30 p.m. April 7 in the college's gallery on the second floor of the north end of Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Another event planned for Architecture Week will be a role-playing session at 12:30 p.m. April 9 in the gallery, in which architecture and construction students will debate issues involving documents and contracts. . .

- Larry J. Keller, a designer with HTB Inc., will be the guest speaker at Wednesday's meeting of Chapter 25 of the National Association of Women in Construction.

Keller will discuss the architectural philosophy behind the renovation of One Bell Central, located on Robinson Ave. between NW 7th and NW 8th streets.

The dinner meeting will be held at One Bell Central.

Following Keller's presentation, members of the group will take a tour of the historic building. Keller will identifiy areas of particular architectural significance during the tour.

The building's interior design earned HTB a National Honor Award last year from the American Society of Interior Designers, considered the nation's leading interior design organization.
