This style of writing took a few pages to get into. Similar to running with a bike before jumping on to ride. It is a fast, fascinating and sometimes humorous read. Interesting how people can emotionally, or subconsciously recognize other people. I may re-read this story and am interested in the series. I look forward to more works by this author. It wasn't bad.

Fitzpatrick Retires On 30 June , Fitzpatrick resigned as dean to return to teaching.
Fitzpatrick saw the retirement of Makielski, marking the end of an era in , after four decades of teaching. Makielski distinguished himself as both a teacher and as an architect. Fitzpatrick took a leave of absence on 1 February to carry out research under a Department of Health, Education, and Welfare fellowship, and then resigned from the University on 31 January He was elected as an honorary member on 15 April of the Kallikrates Chapter of Alpha Rho Chi architectural fraternity at the University.
That same year, K. New books, along with older ones, became references in design studios and architectural history courses, such as William R. All of this interest in the diversely talented architects of the eventually led to the post-modern movement, which early twentieth century and focused public attention investigated what the modern movement had denied, on their previously ignored eclectic architecture.
Just as the early twentieth-century modern movement influenced by the German Bauhaus did not Joseph Norwood Bosserman take effect in most college teaching until after the When Tom Fitzpatrick resigned on 1 July to Second World War, the post-modern did not influence teaching until the s. Some of the leaders in return to teaching, J. Norwood Joe Bosserman was appointed as acting dean that same day. On 1 that movement were Michael Graves of Princeton, who designed the colonnade across the amphitheater February , he became dean of the School during.
Shannon Jr. Appointed first to the school in , Bosserman was promoted from assistant professor to associate professor of architecture on 1 September , and then to full professor on 1 July Beginning on 1 February , he also served as assistant dean of the School. Bosserman, born 12 July in Harrisonburg, Virginia, received his bachelor of science degree in architecture from the University in , and was awarded the AIA School Medal that year.
Bosserman was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Additionally, Bosserman was a designer for a Houston architectural firm. Bosserman received a Fulbright Scholarship to study in England , where he taught in the architectural department of the Kingston School of Art in Surrey. A search committee consisting of a professional architect and six members of the University faculty was named by President Shannon to select a replacement for Dean Fitzpatrick.
The chair of the committee was university professor William S. Weedon, and its members included alumnus Stanley Krause U. BS Arch , professor of business administration Paul M. Hammaker, professor emeritus Emerson G. Spies, and architecture school faculty members Donald H. Miller, Frederick D. Nichols, William B. In January , University president Edgar F.
Shannon selected Bosserman for the deanship. Fayerweather Hall, built as a gymnasium and later converted to studios and classroom space, had become severely overcrowded as the enrollment of the School increased during the s. BS Arch The architecture building was planned as the first component of a fine arts complex to be built over a period of ten years.
This complex was projected to include a fine arts library, and facilities for drama and speech, music, television and radio, and studio art. The plans also included a car parking garage. The envisioned art facility, music facility, and parking garage were not completed until the twenty-first century. The completed architecture school building included 18, square feet of studio space, more than twice. These laboratories were designed to allow faculty members to demonstrate such environmental elements as light, temperature, and airflow, so that students could actually experience changes in their surroundings.
The second laboratory was equipped with low-voltage switching and dimmers. Controls enabled the light to be varied to red, blue, green, mixtures of those colors, as well as warm and cool shades of white.
The School of Architecture began the move from Fayerweather Hall into its new home on 15 January and completed the move in time for the beginning of the spring semester on February 3rd. The art department, which had been located in Cocke Hall, moved into the vacated space in Fayerweather Hall. Plans were developed to have the students in the Architecture School form a line between Fayerweather Hall and Campbell Hall on February 3rd to transfer the 15, books of the architecture collection to their new home. It was later decided to use groups of fifty students and faculty throughout the day.
Unfortunately, rain hampered the book transfer, but a portion of the books were transferred on that day and the rest were transferred in the ensuing weeks. Ferol Briggs who served as librarian in Campbell Hall decided not to pursue the librarian position in the new Fiske Kimball Fine Arts Library and the first professional librarian to hold that position, Mary Dunnigan, was hired. Additionally, several watercolor paintings by Campbell are on display. The Drama Education School In addition to the opening of the library, the Drama Education School with its theater was completed in Architecture Curriculum Change Beginning in , a curriculum committee, initially chaired by Matt Kayhoe of the architecture faculty, evaluated possible changes in the architecture curriculum.
Increasingly, architecture schools were changing from a five-year undergraduate professional degree program to a four-year pre-professional program plus a graduate professional program and the School of Architecture faculty considered a similar change. Several reasons were cited in support of the curriculum change. A pre-professional undergraduate Today, the library houses many artifacts from around program would provide a student with the opporthe world and also right from the University. After tunity to obtain the breadth of knowledge in the.
A separate graduate program would enable the School to continue its strong emphasis on physical design while at the same time providing options for sub disciplines at the graduate level. Suggested sub disciplines included design, office administration, engineering, and theory. A pre-professional program at the undergraduate level would make it easier for students to both transfer into the program from other parts of the University or to transfer to other schools within the University if they decided against pursuing a career in architecture.
Shortly after his arrival, assistant professor K. Edward Lay was appointed chair of the curriculum committee. Over the next few years, he assigned committees of faculty members to investigate and make proposals for shaping the first two years of undergraduate study, the last two years of undergraduate study, and the graduate program.
During the spring semester, Robert L. Vickery Jr. The following session, Vickery was hired to co-chair, with Carlo Pelliccia, of the architecture division and implemented the newly established bachelor of architecture program for undergraduate and graduate education. At the same time that modifications were being considered to the architectural curriculum, the content of the planning curriculum was also studied.
Initially, the undergraduate program in planning had been a five-year program, sharing a common introIn its first years, the graduate program consisted of a ductory design studio with architecture, and had two-year master of architecture curriculum. Recincluded more advanced planning design studios. In ognition that students with a wide variety of design the academic session, the undergraduate backgrounds were interested in graduate architectural degree was changed to a four-year bachelor of city study led to the establishment of three graduate-path planning program, and the mandatory design studios programs in the mids.
In the three-path were eliminated. Richard Collins came to the University that same year as professor and chair of the planning division and under Frederick Nichols as chair of architectural history, the Historic Preservation Option Certificate was established in the School in As early as , preservation courses were taught in the School, and its architectural history degree program was the first one established in the U.
The School early-on was associated with Colonial Williamsburg. Roy Graham had been a director there and became the director of historic preservation in the School from to Admission of Women and Black Students to the School of Architecture By the s, the School of Architecture admitted the first black students and women into the program. Edward Wayne Barnett U. BS Arch was admitted as the first black student to the School of Architecture by then chair of undergraduate admissions, K.
The following year, the second black student, Lawrence E. Williams U. Dora L.

MP in planning. Of those graduates, only one, Joan L. Kennedy U. BS Arch , had begun as a first-year University of Virginia architecture student; the other six had transferred into the School from other programs at the University. These events marked a permanent change to the school and student body.
The year was a very transitional year. Up until this time, students traditionally wore coats and ties to class by choice. That changed with the admission of women to the University. The year prior, male students approached faculty with petitions to sign against allowing women to matriculate. Many claimed that it would lower the academic standards of U. Of course, women probably actually increased the academic standards, and the School now has over fifty percent women matriculating.
The Bachelor of Architecture class of introduced wearing morning suits for graduation rather than the usual cap and gown. This dress code was carried on for many years thereafter with graduating women wearing white dresses and hats. At first, the five-year undergraduate program was maintained in architecture, as was a five-year undergraduate program in landscape architecture, until each was phased out and replaced by the four-year ones. The landscape architecture program received provisional accreditation in for two years, and after a November accreditation visit, it was. In , Porter completely abolished the undergraduate landscape program in order to concentrate on its graduate program.
It was not until 6 December that the University president announced that the four divisions were going to be changed to departments within the School of Architecture, subject to final approval by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. Curriculum changes: International Programs For many years, the School of Architecture has offered students opportunities to live and study in Venice and Vicenza, Italy.
These foreign programs had their beginning when ten students led by Frederick D. Nichols and Carlo Pelliccia spent September attending the Thirteenth International Conference on the History of Architecture in Italy, which focused on the architecture of Palladio and his time. Since the first study abroad program in , the school has sent both students and faculty abroad for international study. The students took more than slides of the city. Each student concentrated on a specific aspect of the city, including greenery, statuary, doorways, and floor patterns. Later, a program was established in Copenhagen.
In the summer of , eighteen students from the School of Architecture spent the summer in Vicenza, Italy, as the School launched its first undergraduate-abroad program. Five years later, the School established a spring semester graduate program in Venice. A visiting faculty exchange program was established with Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh, Scotland, in the session with head of the Edinburgh College of Art, Ralph Cowan, being the first visiting professor from there.
In the coming decades, the School of Architecture continued to emphasize the value of international study. The Architecture in China Program remains a popular option for students looking to gain new perspectives on the built environment. Virginia has pioneered in establishing the degree of Master of Architectural History and was the first institution to provide classroom, seminar, and laboratory instruction in the methodology of restoration in cooperation with the Historic American Buildings Survey, Colonial Williamsburg, and others.
The School of Architecture of Columbia University now grants a degree of Master of Science in Architecture with a certificate in restoration and preservation.
The College of Architecture of Cornell University proposes a program that would train city and regional planners in the conservation of architecture and would train students from various disciplines in restoration from the point of view of the planners. The report further recommended that a graduate degree from a university program in preservation and restoration be offered.
Already recognized as a notable institution in this field, the Historic Preservation Option Certificate was established in the School in During the spring semester of , this process was formally begun. In February , the School hosted the first of what became an annual series of conferences on historic preservation.
This first conference featured alumni discussing projects on which they were working. James Wollon U. MP , who was preservation administrator of Historic Annapolis, spoke about preservation problems in the city. Tucker H. Hill U. B ArH , U. BS Arch also spoke on historic preservation issues. Initially two courses a semester were offered at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, by University of Virginia planning faculty on an overload basis. The response was large, with thirty-five to forty-five students enrolled in each class. A large proportion of these were non-military.
Belvoir Center. Interest in the historic preservation program continued to grow through the s and in the certificate program was amended such that graduate. At this time, the planning division offered two degrees: bachelor of city planning and master of city planning. The latter was changed to master of. Later, it became the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning. Collins and David Phillips crafted a proposal that provided on-going Division of Continuing Education support for full-time faculty positions within the School of Architecture. David Phillips was the first administrator, serving from until ; William H.
Lucy was administrator from through , with short periods served by Greg Lipton and David Phillips. The last classes were offered in The Northern Virginia masters of planning program provided a rich educational experience to continuing education students who were often simultaneously pursuing their early career, family obligations, and graduate education.
Normally six to eight courses were offered each fall and spring. Students could take up to four core courses before officially applying to the School of Architecture for admission to the degree program. The faculty was always amazed at the dedication of these students who invested so heavily of their personal time in their continuing professional education. Classes were always interesting and stimulating as a result of their seriousness and dedication.

Vessels were constructed by students, and Virginia courses offered by part-time faculty. Dean according to the rules of the competition, all those Karen Van Lengen and the planning faculty conwho built a boat had to propel it across the reservoir. The regatta was reported in detail in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The boats were primarily made of paper or cardboard, with the winning boat being a well-padded cardboard kayak built and piloted by John Redolski. Especially interesting was the boat designed by Patrick W. Collins U. Constructed as a 4-foot-tall, pyramidal-shaped vinyl balloon, the two pilots sat inside the balloon and propelled it across the water by rolling it. The regatta also saw four boats end up at the bottom of the reservoir.

The model exhibit was organized and displayed by students of the School under the direction of faculty members Mario di Valmarana and Theo van Groll, who traveled with the exhibit to other sites in America. According to Valmarana and van Groll, Jefferson perceived Palladianism at an intellectual level as a humanistic concept. Man is the universe; the universe revolves around Man. Jefferson helped model an indigenous American architecture. Casteen and Carl I. Classes were canceled, cars stopped and rocked near the Rotunda, an ROTC building door fire-bombed, and a massive influx of many state police came to the University.
After that there was much difficulty in how to grade the students without a completion of classes. Many petitions pro and con for the war were circulated, with many frightened faculty signing them, even ones that contradicted the other! He was from the Shenandoah Valley, his father a banker, and received a graduate degree from Princeton. After Dean Fitzpatrick retired in and Joe was his assistant dean, he became acting dean. The faculty and university administration elected him dean the following year. Joe had a flare for the cultural value of Europe and brought many Europeans to the School to teach, as well as encouraged faculty to establish overseas programs for students.
He kept a room in the Faculty Apartments nearby for use by visiting faculty and lecturers. Some full-time faculty lived on the upper floor in what was known as The Mews, an outbuilding in the U. West Gardens. In fall , Matt Kayhoe stepped down as assistant dean, and Ed Lay was asked to take his place under Dean Bosserman.

The tasks of the position were quite extensive—overseeing the students, the clerical staff, and the building maintenance as well as other chores, such as substituting for the dean in his absence, being in charge of graduation, and calling out names for diplomas! Joe had a flare for pageantry. As our Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medalist in Architecture involved a new recipient each year, many of the earlier recipients and their families would return for the occasion.
Only a few were able to attend the medalist dinner. Those not invited to attend the Monticello event were escorted to the Greencroft Club for a very elegant dinner. The climax was that he arranged for fireworks to go off in Madison Bowl, which made a spectacular background for the Rotunda! However, there was J.

The next morning when the assistant dean approached his office door, he saw one of the black University chairs in front of it, and the cat on a cushion on it. A sign on the chair stated that Corbu had become a full professor with an endowed chair, which meant that the cat outranked the assistant dean! The Cavalier Daily picked this up with ongoing stories and pictures of the cat.
Then, jokingly, the students wrote letters to the paper expressing their concern that the cat did not even have a degree. This caused Mrs. Hereford to get into the act and sent funds cat food for the education of the cat in grad school. Thereafter, the assistant dean made a tongue-in-cheek offer to any student going to California for the holidays to take Corbu-the-Cat and leave it there!
Bosserman Retires In January , Dean Bosserman announced that he would leave the deanship at the end of the academic year in order to return to teaching. He received the William C. After his retirement he became a professor emeritus in , having been a member of the faculty since 1 February During his thirteen years as dean, he oversaw the change of the former five-year undergraduate program to the current four-year pre-professional program and the.
Additional faculty were added to the School, and the student body grew from to With the increase in students and faculty came an increased number and variety of course offerings.
Joseph Bosserman Fellowships were established in his honor to provide support for graduate students in the School to be used for payment of tuition, fees, room, board, and other educational expenses. Historical Context: The New Urbanism The New Urbanism arose in the early s as a movement that promoted walkable neighborhoods and envisioned a community more like that which preceded suburban developments, urban sprawl, and the dramatic increase in automobile use after the Second World War.
In , one of the first examples of a community designed in the New Urbanism manner was Seaside in Florida planned by Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zybek, Additionally, the Congress for the New Urbanism, founded in , developed a Charter of the New Urbanism, which stated: Neighborhoods should be diverse in use and population, communities should be designed for the pedestrian and transit as well as the car, cities and towns should be shaped by physically. The Charter covered issues such as historic preservation, safe streets, green building, and the redevelopment of brownfield land abandoned land previously used for industrial and commercial purposes.
Hereford Jr. Jaquelin Taylor Robertson was selected as dean effective 1 July for a five-year term and, on 1 Jul , for a second such term. Robertson, a native Richmonder, a graduate of Yale, and a Rhodes Scholar, came to the School from New York where he had worked as an architect and an urban planner. After leaving government, he was vice president in charge of planning and design for Arlen Realty and Development Company. Robertson officially assumed the deanship of the School of Architecture at the University on 1 January It was a thirty-two-square-block warehouse district, which had grown to be a major tobacco warehousing center in the decades following the Civil War.
Over time, the warehouses were abandoned and allowed to deteriorate. Then, in the early s, Shockoe Slip began to be redeveloped into a moderately successful restaurant district. However, property owners realized that much potential remained undeveloped and organized the Shockoe Slip Foundation to coordinate revitalization efforts. The work began at the School during the spring semester when an architectural history class Because of the increased emphasis on fund-raising studied the historical significance of the Shockoe responsibilities nationally for Deans, that Fall two Slip tract.

During their project, students were advised by two outside consultants, Allan Jacobs, a planning professor at the University of California at Berkeley, and Jonathan Barnett, an architecture professor from the City College of New York. The Institute, operated under the auspices of the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning, provided third-party assistance in environmental disputes over a broad range of issues, including water quality, neighborhood zoning, and siting of public facilities. The Institute for Environmental Negotiation is an environmental-dispute-resolution organization at the University of Virginia.

The institute began with a staff of five, including Collins, Richman, assis- serve on numerous local, state, and national boards and programs. This program was designed to provide opportunities for the rediscovery and examination of the values that underlie American urban form. In an interdisciplinary setting, students explored the application and adaptation of these values to contemporary aspirations, beliefs, and conditions. The core of the program was a studio, which involved analysis of significant examples of American urbanism as unique phenomena particular to their new world mythology.
This was followed by investigations of specific urban contexts through analyses and design with the intention of defining generic issues and solving local problems. Concurrent seminars dealt with the aspects of the city, such as building and land-use regulation, transportation, and development economics, as well as urban history and theory. The twenty-four-credit program led to a certificate in American urbanism and was open to students representing each of the disciplines of the School. In later years, this. Over twenty-three faculty taught in diverse fields with particularly strong concentrations in ancient, Renaissance, modern, American, and Asian art and architecture.
In , a certificate program was established in which graduate students in any discipline represented in the School could incorporate a sequence of preservation-related courses into their degree program. After leaving as dean, he planned new urbanist communities such as.

His behavior was a paradoxical blend of serenity and intensity.
He was often private and, at other times, very public, but there was always that kind smile and playful gleam in his eye that revealed his zest for life and slightly devilish sense of humor. Shunning the spotlight, he preferred to remain in the background, supporting and mentoring the success of others, but his undeniable talents would elevate him to leadership positions throughout his lifetime.
