Recognizing Women in Architecture . Spring 2015



Architecture Futures Exhibition Opens


4:00pm Reception

5:00pm Lecture:Billie Tsien


Open Call - What is the Image of Architecture

Images are powerful. They convey message and transport imagination. From Paleolithic painters portraying animals upon rock faces to European migrant workers ripping their portraits in half as a means to communicate safe arrival, from Times Square’s super-images on LED screens to Instagram’s digital image feeds floating across one’s phone, images are and have been a critical medium of human culture. Images are also an essential dimension of Architecture. They are a means to project visionary intentions, resolve complicated questions, and clarify uncertain connections.

As architecture students you are constantly taking, making, and discussing architecture through images. Fe_Arch 2015 asks that you submit an image you authored that best illustrates your answer to the question, “What is the image of Architecture?”

The image may define Architecture in terms of present, future, past - describe space, building, material - convey a scene or tell a narrative. We ask that you consider recent and newly developed work, completed in studio, electives, or personal investigations.

This is an Open Call for College of Architecture female students to participate in Fe_arch 2015 digital exhibition that will run from April 13 - 17, 2015 in the College of Architecture First Floor Gallery. Submissions will be consider for recognition during 2015 Fe_arch Event on Friday 17 April 2015 to take place following 5:00pm lecture by Billie Tsien of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects.

We see architecture as an act of profound optimism. Its foundation lies in believing that it is possible to make places on the earth that can give a sense of grace to life - and in believing that it matters. - Tod Williams and Billie Tsien
