Disaster Training Seminar:

Students learn to e\ allute ldisaster-rkklen strnctilres

This past summer, 22
students spent four weeks
in Guadalajara, Mexico
working on design projects
in historic areas.

Their work will be on
display from Oct. 12-17 in
the gallery. There will be a
reception at 5 p.m.
Monday Oct. 12.

On Sept. 14, two graduate Advanced Structures classes gathered
to learn how to evaluate building structures after natural
disasters, such as hurricanes and earthquakes.

The speaker was Michael Lingerfelt, AIA, LEED, an Orlando based
architect currently providing similar training through AIA Florida
to architects and engineers throughout the country.

The event was organized by architecture structures faculty
Michael Kuenstle and Nawari Nawari.

"Bringing a person like that to our school is part of a continued
effort to bridge between academy, profession and community,"
Kuenstle said.

All are welcome!
