Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The dilemma of building contemporary architecture in the context of one of America's World Heritage landmarks, Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village at the University of Virginia, is the central theme of Urgent Matters. Karen Van Lengen, former dean of the School of Architecture, writes about her vision of building the School of Architecture--a highly orchestrated collaborative design strategy to exemplify the potential of architecture, landscape architecture, preservation, and planning in the public realm.

Using their existing building, Campbell Hall, as a working laboratory, Van Lengen demonstrates how various spatial, material, and iconographic designs can influence and support the mission of an institution in a period in which branding and image-making is the norm. The book includes both written and visual descriptions of the built projects of the past decade (1999-2009) designed by faculty, students, and alumni.

Distributed for the University of Virginia School of Architecture
