The Charrette will be conducted by teams of UTSA College of Architecture students in Assistant Professor Antonio Petrov’s Graduate Design Studio and volunteering young professionals from the community. The Charrette features the participation of Guest Critic Sharon Johnston, AIA, who is the co-founder of Los Angeles firm Johnston Marklee. The firm had a breakout year in 2012, having won the international commission for the new Menil Drawing Institute on the legendary Menil Collection campus in Houston. Johnston Marklee topped an impressive shortlist of competitors to design the Menil Collection’s first major expansion since the campus’ public debut 25 years ago.
The Charrette is part of the Public Space, Public Transit, Public Art series, which is a project funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). In the summer of 2012, the UTSA College of Architecture, in partnership with the City of San Antonio’s Department for Culture and Creative Development and VIA Metropolitan Transit, was selected to receive an “Our Town” grant from NEA. The project began in January and the event series runs through May.
