  7. 7. THE FIRST BUILDING DEDICATED TO ARCHITECTURE WAS CONSTRUCTED IN 1953 AND DESIGNED BY ONE OF THE DEPARTMENT’S FIRST GRADUATES, EDMUND FURLEY JR. THE BUILDING, KNOWN AS “BUILDING X”, WAS A ONE-STORY SIMPLE LIGHT- STEEL-FRAMED BUILDING USING STEEL ROOF DECKING AS CLADDING AND RECLAIMED WINDOWS FROM JOBSITES AROUND THE CITY. THE BUILDING WAS PRIMARILY OPEN SPACE STUDIOS WITH A CLUSTER OF CLASSROOMS IN THE CENTER. THERE WAS NO AUDITORIUM OR LIBRARY IN THE ORIGINAL DESIGN. IN 1965, THE ENTRANCE, A SPACE ANCHORED BY A CONCAVE ORANGE BRICK WALL, WAS CONCERTED TO THE FIRST LIBRARY AND COLLECTION DEDICATED TO ARCHITECTURE. COST OF CONSTRUCTION: THE BUILDING WAS CONSTRUCTED FOR $160,000 (PRESENT VALUE OF $1,416,000 ) AND WAS INTENDED AS A TEMPORARY FACILITY UNTIL A MORE PERMANENT STRUCTURE COULD BE FINANCED. A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY THE DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE WAS SETUP IN 1945 BY RICHARD LILLIOT JR. LILLIOT WAS A GRADUATE OF THE RICE INSTITUTE IN 1935
  8. 8. BY THE LATE 1970S, THE NAAB HAD COMMENTED ONCE AGAIN THAT THE COLLEGE’S SPACE WAS INADEQUATE. THE “TEMPORARY FACILITY” BUILT IN 1953 WAS FAR BEYOND ITS USE. IN 1980, THE CHANCELLOR OF THE UNIVERSITY, BARRY MUNITZ, APPROACHED THE STATE LEGISLATURE WITH A PROPOSITION FOR A NEW ARCHITECTURE BUILDING FOR THE CAMPUS. COST BUDGET FOR NEW BUILDING: $20 MILLION WAS ALLOCATED TO BUILD A 153,000 SQ FT NEW BUILDING TO ACCOMMODATE UP TO 640 STUDENTS. WALTER EUGENE GEORGE JR. (U.TEXAS ’49, HARVARD ’50) WAS PULLED FROM KANSAS AND APPOINTED THE NEW DEAN AND GIVEN THE TASK AT BRINGING THE PROGRAM UP TO NAAB STANDARDS. A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY
  9. 9. A UNIVERSITY MASTER PLAN DONE IN 1977 SET OUT A FRAMEWORK FOR A NEW ACADEMIC BUILDING TO ACT AS A GATEWAY BETWEEN THE VAST AMOUNTS OF PARKING ON THE NORTH SIDE OF CAMPUS TO ITS CORE. WITH FINANCES FOR A NEW ARCHITECTURE BUILDING SECURED, IT WAS DECIDED THAT IT SHOULD ACT AS THE GATEWAY. A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY
  10. 10. IN MAY OF 1983, JOHNSON AND BURGEE PRODUCED PRELIMINARY PLANS OF THE NEW BUILDING TO THE BOARD OF REGENTS. THE BUILDING HAD NEVER BEEN REALIZED UNTIL ITS OPPORTUNI TY IN HOUSTON WITH JOHNSON. A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY $20 MILLION WAS ALLOCATED TO BUILD A 153,000 SQ FT NEW BUILDING TO ACCOMMODATE UP TO 640 STUDENTS
  11. 11. JOHNSON PROPOSED A NEAR REPLICA OF THE HOUSE OF EDUCATION BY CLAUDE-NICOLAS LEDOUX AS THE DESIGN BASE FOR THE SCHOOL A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY
  12. 12. AT A TIME WHEN THE MAJORITY OF HOUSTON’S CAMPUS LACKED CHARACTER, SIZE OR PERMANENCE, THE NEW COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE BUILDING BECAME AN INSTANT ICON AND IDENTITY FOR THE UNIVERSITY. THE BUILDING WAS HIGHLY VISIBLE FROM HOUSTON’S DOWNTOWN DISTRICT AS WELL AS THE ADJACENT GULF FREEWAY. THE STRATEGIC POSITIONING ACTED PRECISELY AS THE 1974 MASTER PLAN CALLED FOR AND CREATED A NEW MAJOR AXIS ON THE CAMPUS WHICH WAS LATER EMPHASIZED AS NEW BUILDINGS WERE ADDED IN THE 1980S AND 1990S WITH THE COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE AT THE HELM.

  15. 15. THE GF PLAN IS ELONGATED ON THE HORIZON. THE WHOLE PLAN IS CENTRALIZED BASED ON WHICH OTHER SPACES ARE ALLOCATED. A TYPICAL COURTYARD IN THE CENTER HELPS IN VISUAL ACCESS TO THE VARIOUS PORTIONS OF THE BUILDING. A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N A R C H I T E C T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN LITERATURE STUDY
  16. 16. THE BUILDING WAS FIXED ON A CENTRAL COURT MEASURING FORTY FEET SQUARE AND EIGHTY FEET HIGH. 40’ 40’ THE COURT IS SKY-LIT FROM ABOVE AND ACTS AS THE CENTRAL LIFE TO THOSE IN THE COLLEGE, AND AS THE ENTRY SEQUENCE OF THE UNIVERSITY FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT. THE COURT HAS BEEN USED OVER THE YEARS TO HOLD EXHIBITIONS, BALLS, IMPROMPTU SPORTING EVENTS, AND MOST NOTABLY GRADUATION CEREMONIES.

  19. 19. THE THREE UPPER LEVELS OF STUDIOS ARE CLUSTERED AROUND THE COURT, WHICH IS USED AS A WAY TO CONNECT ALL OF THE STUDIOS TOGETHER BOTH VISUALLY AND AUDIBLY. STAIRS AT BOTH OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE COURT ARE USED TO PROGRESS STUDENTS BETWEEN FLOORS, FURTHER STIMULATING THE COURTS USE AND STUDENTS’ INTERACTION. JOHNSON WAS CAREFUL TO KEEP THE ELEVATORS HIDDEN TO ENCOURAGE STAIR USE BY THE STUDENTS.

  20. 20. THE SECTION OF THE BUILDING RESEMBLES THE CHRISTIAN “CHURCH” ARCHITECTURE WHERE THE STUDIOS ARE ON EITHER OF THE SIDES (NAVES) AND THE CENTRAL COURTYARD ALSO ACTS AS A LINK BETWEEN ALL THE FLOORS (AISLE).

  23. 23. THE TOP OF THE ATRIUM IS COVERED WITH FRAME AND GLASSES . THE ATRIUM SPACE IS QUITE LARGE. ATOP THE COURT, OUTSIDE OF THE SKYLIGHT, SITS A SQUARE TEMPLE. IN HIS PRESENTATION TO THE BOARD OF REGENTS, JOHNSON SAID, “GENTLEMEN, I UNDERSTAND THAT A PERCENT OF THE BUDGET HERE AT UH GOES TO ART IN THE WAY OF A PIECE OF SCULPTURE… BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPEND THAT!” HE PROCEEDED TO OPEN A BLOOMINGDALE’S BAG AND PULLED OUT A LITTLE TEMPLE AND SAT IT ON TOP OF THE MODEL. WHEN CONFRONTED BY ONE OF THE REGENTS WHO EXCLAIMED THAT THE TEMPLE LOOKED EXPENSIVE AND UNNECESSARY, JOHNSON ARGUED THAT IT WAS A “DIVERTER TO SCREEN THE HOT SUN FROM THE SKYLIGHT THAT LIGHTS THE ROTUNDA OF THE BUILDING.” THIS RESPONSE PLEASED THE BOARD AND THE TEMPLE WAS INCLUDED.
