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