Architectural practice in Washington encompasses a wide range of work, large and small, physical and conceptual. At its best it is not simply a beautiful object, but a relationship between objects, people, and the environment. The 2013 AIA Honor Awards features new submittal guidelines and judging criteria that recognize our profession’s changing conditions, complexity and expanding scope. We believe that design should embody a balance between INSPIRATION, PROBLEM-SOLVING, ENVIRONMENTAL SENSITIVITY, and SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION.

Fall 2013 Lecture Series

Wednesday, October 30
Architecture Hall 147 – University of Washington

Stella Betts, together with David Leven, created Leven Betts Studio in New York City in 1997.  The practice has focused on projects relating to issues of the city with works ranging from houses and housing to the CM2.0 Children’s Museums and the Cornell University Sibley Hall. The studio has received numerous awards, including The Architectural League of NY’s Emerging Voices Award 2009 and four AIA NYC Awards; and has lectured and exhibited work internationally. Their monograph Leven Betts: Pattern Recognition (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008) highlights the firm’s belief that the design of meaningful spaces which bring people into an active relationship with architecture requires finding and  inscribing in space the physical marks and temporal patterns of our daily lives. Betts is the coordinator of the graduate thesis program at Parsons and an adjunct faculty member of the Cooper Union Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture.  She received a Master of architecture degree from Harvard University in 1994.

The lecture is free and open to the public and a reception will be held following the evening lecture in Architecture Hall 250.
