Gathers in Las Vegas

In recent months, the School of Architecture and Planning invited a number of distinguished alumni to return to campus and speak about their careers as part of the inaugural Architecture and Planning Alumni Lecture Series. 

Over the course of four months, five alumni came back to the Crough Center at Catholic University: Robert M. Gurney, M.Arch. 1982; Mariela Buendia-Corrochano, B.S. 1990, B.Arch. 1991; Brian Pilot, M.Arch. 1997; Meral Iskir, M.Arch. 1973; and Paul Masi, B.Arch. 1994.

Meral Iskir was especially honored in March with the school’s Joseph Miller award, given in memory of Joe Miller, alumnus, professor, and past associate dean in the School of Architecture.

Allan Greenberg, a renowned Classical architect, also offered a studio in the school’s Classical concentration.

The goal of the lecture series was to engage with Architecture alumni, as well as to highlight their achievements for current students and show them what can be accomplished with a degree from Catholic University.

Next up for the school is a gathering in Las Vegas, Nevada. Any Architecture alumni, parents, or friends of the University who may be in the Las Vegas area on June 6 are also invited to attend a reception during the AIA Conference on Architecture. The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Twilight Room, Stratosphere, 2000 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Las Vegas, NV 89104. Enjoy cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and fun conversations with people close to the University.
