New Book Chronicles 100 Years of UC Berkeley's Architecture Departmentby Leslie Golden | Share #227
Design on the Edge: A Century of Teaching Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, 1903-2003
Waverly Lowell and Elizabeth Douthitt Byrne just completed a book on the history of the UCB Architecture Department. There are quite a few articles by and about women architects.
This illustrated monograph of approximately 370 pages combines scholarly essays written by faculty about the development, contributions, and future of the program; reflections of faculty and alumni about their experiences here; a timeline/chronology; lists of key people and contributions; a color portfolio of a century of student drawings; and appendices of architecture faculty. It is intended for alumni, students, faculty, architectural historians, and the general public.

We are just about to launch the Mentorship Program and we encourage all of you to add a bit more information to your online profile, to facilitate mentor/mentee matches. Log in to your profile at https://owa-usa.org/member.php?e=1
Try to answer the following questions within the “About Yourself” and “Interests” comment boxes:
1) Briefly summarize your professional experience and areas of expertise.
2) What are your values and interests? Source of inspiration?
3) What do you do for fun? List your favorites: books, websites, designers, travel destinations???
Also, please be sure that your address information is current, so that you can connect with other local professionals. Finally, if you would like to participate in the mentorship program, make certain that you indicate your interest by checking the appropriate box under your profile!
Please contact Karlene if you have any additional questions but we have tried to make this as easy as possible to allow our membership to connect with each other independently.
