Interior Architecture 90_20 Anniversary Celebration on March 31, 2017

Dudley Hall

Ninety years ago, one of the first interior design programs in the United States was created within Alabama Polytechnic Institute’s School of Architecture and Applied Arts. Twenty years ago, that program was renamed Interior Architecture to better reflect its evolution into a unique, dual-degree program in Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design and Construction. On March 31, 2017, CADC and the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture will celebrate this 90_20 Anniversary.

 

The 90_20 Anniversary Celebration begins in the morning with tours of Dudley Hall and an exhibition of student work and includes lunch. Lectures by keynote speakers Lois Weinthal, Chair and Professor at Ryerson University’s School of Interior Design in Toronto, Canada, and Bobby McAlpine, a 1981 graduate of Interior Design and 1983 graduate of Architecture and founder and principal of McALPINE, begin at 1:00 p.m. The day’s events end with a reception at 5:00 p.m. at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art.

Bobby McAlpine is a 1981 graduate of Interior Design and 1983 graduate of Architecture. Born in an Alabama sawmill town, Bobby designed his first house at the age of five—and hasn’t stopped since. Architect, romantic, poet and entrepreneur, he envisions home as a timeless, graceful and emotionally evocative place. From the time he founded the firm in 1983, he has realized this ideal in a diverse array of traditional styles and regional vernaculars for clients all over the country. Today known as McALPINE, the firm now embraces a brilliant and eclectic family of professional architects and interior designers with offices in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and New York. Along with his furniture line, Bobby is the author of The Home Within Us, the critically acclaimed best-selling book from Rizzoli Publications, and co-author of Art of the House.

Architecture Camp Session 2

This week-long program is designed to begin with basic concepts and concludes with several architectural design projects. These projects allow the students to display the information they have learned throughout the week. The workshop is quite intensive but overly exciting with the vast hands-on experience the students receive. While working each day in the Auburn University School of Architecture studios, students will be given not only individual guidance, but they will have the opportunity to engage and learn from the university’s highly-qualified professors. Program faculty consists of dedicated and caring Auburn faculty members who hold degrees in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and the Fine Arts. The faculty's diverse background will ensure students a broad perspective of the different aspect of design. There will also be camp counselors present at all times with the students to ensure safety and supervision. In addition to their work in the studio, students will experience campus-life while on the plains. From residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, dining at on-campus facilities and enjoying evening social and recreational activities, the students will receive such a memorable experience that they will cherish this great opportunity.
