Urban Land Institute plans architecture discussion

Postby YuriArtibise on Fri Jun 20, 2008 3:51 pm


The Urban Land Institute will hold its monthly meeting June 26 in Tucson, with a discussion planned on Southwestern architecture and the intrinsic sustainability derived from it.

R. Brooks Jeffery -- he teaches at the University of Arizona College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, where he is associate dean -- will lead the discussion titled, "A Tradition of Sustainability: Vernacular Buildings of the American Southwest."

Jeffery is the author of numerous books, including "Yemen: A Culture of Builders," "A Guide to Tucson Architecture" and "From Azulejos to Zaguanes: The Islamic Legacy in the Built Environment of Hispano-America."

The program will be held at the Pennington Street Garage Conference Room.
