Hard Hat Construction Tour

Tour is Limited to 30 People. RSVP and Hardhat Required! RSVP by Monday, 1/20/2014 at noon.

Please email Sara Teaster

Additional details about meeting time and parking will be emailed to those who RSVP.

Join Carolyn Entzminger, AIA of Odell Associates on a hard-hat tour of the Battle Building at UVA Children’s Hospital. This comprehensive outpatient facility will consolidate all of the UVA Medical Center’s outpatient pediatric care in one building, with convenient access to pediatric inpatient services at UVA Children’s Hospital. The seven-story, 200,000 square feet building is scheduled to open for patients this summer.

Designed by Odell Architects in partnership with Stanley Beaman & Sears from Atlanta, GA, the team faced challenges such as gaining consensus from multiple user groups. These included 36 specialty outpatient clinics and the UVA Outpatient Surgery Center. The resulting building has care organized in complementary ‘neighborhoods’ and will feature rotating storytelling themes at each floor. General contractor Kjellstrom + Lee has also struggled with tight site conditions and no material storage space at the location at JPA and West Main.

Lecture- Monday October 28th- Psychedelic Architecture: Towards a New Allegory

securedownload

 

School of Architecture Open House Keynote Lecture

John Hong, Principal, SsD

Psychedelic Architecture: Towards a New Allegory

Campbell 153

TODAY, Monday, 10/28, 6:00pm
John Hong, AIA LEED AP, will introduce the recent work of his firm SsD through the rubric of ‘Psychedelic Architecture.’ By reflecting on the radical social shifts of the 1960′s and early 1970′s he will draw uncanny parallels with the environmental and cultural changes taking place today. Where ‘Metabolist’ and Situationist’ architecture of the ’60′s offered alternative forms of practice and discourse however, Hong calls for a current and more deeply engaged look at form and allegory (as opposed to form and function), that meets the global challenges of today.

Central Virginia Women In Design Returns

Women in Design

 

After a year long hiatus, the Charlottesville chapter of Women in Design has kicked off a new season of programming with a big bang!  Spearheaded by VMDO partner Kim Smith, AIA, LEED AP, the Charlottesville Chapter of this organization hopes to inspire women to come together to advance the overall mission of design related fields.

 

HeleneDreilingOur first event was a trip to Richmond to hear Helene Combs Dreiling, FAIA speak on  her career, the importance of collaboration, and of finding work life balance.   The book, Lean In,  by  Sheryl Sandburg was discussed about the importance of making one’s voice understood and valued in the workplace, especially in fields dominated by men.  Ms. Dreiling will be just the third woman in 157 years to serve as president of the AIA when she begins her term in 2014.

Restarting a group takes some planning and a start up team of the Women in Design group has met over the past two months to consider discussion topics of interest, and what outreach opportunities may be available to help with in the community.  We have selected the third Tuesday of the month to have our meetings/ talks/ social gatherings.  Our first formal gathering will be on September 17th at 6:00 pm at the offices of VMDO Architects on 200 East Market Street.  Our special guest speakers will Michelle Barry Franco http://www.michellebarryfranco.com/   and Michelle Braden  http://msbcoach.com/ who will give a talk on effective communication, presentations, and leadership.

pbj-logo250X2252The Women In Design group has also been selected as the 2013-2014 partner for cooking classes with the Big Brothers Big Sisters and the PB&J fund, which is going to be the new neighbor to VMDO Architects.  The PB&J fund’s mission is to connect Charlottesville Youth with knowledge about healthy eating and to teach children and their families how to cook nutritiously on a budget.
