Emily Baker, Brian Holland and Jessica Colangelo will present 'New Perspectives in Architecture Education' on Nov. 13 at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock.

LITTLE ROCK – The Architecture and Design Network will present "New Perspectives in Architecture Education" on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the Arkansas Arts Center, 501 E. 9th St., in Little Rock. The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. in the center's Lecture Hall, following a 5:30 p.m. reception. 

This will be a panel presentation with Emily Baker, AIA, Jessica Colangelo and Brian Holland, all recently appointed assistant professors of architecture in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

This event is part of the Architecture and Design Network's 2018-19 June Freeman Lecture Series.

Baker is an architect and educator whose full-scale constructed experimentation informs her creative work and teaching. Experience on job sites in architectural practice catalyzed her search for novel structural and construction systems. Her work, employing both digital and analog design and fabrication techniques, seeks to discover new aesthetic territory embedded in the way architecture is conceived and constructed. She received a Master of Architecture from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Arkansas.

Colangelo is a designer and co-founder of the architecture and research practice Somewhere Studio. She received a Master of Architecture from Princeton University, where she was awarded the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Thesis Prize, and a Bachelor of Architecture from Rice University, where she received the American Institute of Architects School Medal.

Holland is an architect, researcher and educator. He is the founder of Open Set, a design studio working at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, landscape and ecology. His extensive professional experience includes award-winning design projects in California, Colorado, New York, Europe and the Middle East. From 2011-2018 Holland served as assistant director of the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York, where he led research and design studios exploring the future of architecture and urbanism in New York City. He received a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Architecture from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona.

The 2018-18 June Freeman Lecture Series is sponsored by the Architecture and Design Network with support from the Arkansas Arts Center, the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, the Central Arkansas section of the Arkansas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and community members.

The lecture is free and open to the public, and no reservations are needed.
