The UTSA College of Architecture Spring 2014 Lecture Series will feature Andrew Bernheimer, AIA, Director of the Master of Architecture program at Parsons The New School for Design and principal of Bernheimer Architecture. The free, public lecture, “Stories and Buildings,” is presented by the UTSA College of Architecture.

As director of the M.Arch program at Parsons, Bernheimer oversees a graduate program known for its connections between theory and practice, which include a signature design-build studio and cross-disciplinary curricular opportunities with graduate programs in lighting and interior design. Bernheimer is also Principal of Bernheimer Architecture, an award-winning studio located in Brooklyn, New York City. His diverse portfolio of public, institutional, non-profit, and private work with wide-ranging contexts and diverse client personalities has elicited a welcome variety of thought and response. Bernheimer Architecture focuses on New York’s urban landscape through research and built work and their portfolio includes speculative, civic, residential, and affordable housing projects.

The firm’s best known work includes: “R-House,” a certified passive house in Syracuse (done in collaboration with Architecture Research Office), the AIANY honor-award winning renovation of legendary architect Paul Rudolph’s penthouse apartment and office at 23 Beekman Place in New York City; innovative residential condominiums at 245 Tenth Avenue and 459 West 18th, both in New York City; and Glenmore Gardens, an affordable housing development in East New York.

Event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Nicole Chavez at nicole.chavez@utsa.edu or (210) 458-3121.
