The Excavating Innovation lecture series, sponsored in part by the Metropolitan Water District’s Community Partners Program, concluded in March. Nan Ellin, Chair of City + Metropolitan Planning at University of Utah, presented her Canalscape scheme, and the methods of civic engagement behind it, for integrating ancient and contemporary infrastructures in dynamic public spaces in Phoenix. Dilip da Cunha and Vinayak Bharne shared an evening of discussions on the logics of indigenous infrastructures in Iran, India, and the American Southwest. All lectures from the series, which also included Katherine Rinne, Morna Livingstone, Aziza Chaouni, and Liat Margolis, are video archived.
In the March issue of Architect, the magazine of the American Institute of Architects, Mark Lamster published a piece called, “The Future Belongs to Woodbury,” recognizing Woodbury School of Architecture’s track record as a Hispanic-serving institution and some of the educational innovations it has put forward, including ALI.
