Temple University has opened the Architecture Building!
We moved in last month and brought our memories of all of you with us. We are hoping that you will come join us in person for Architecture Week: April 2-6.
With tours, lectures, and activities engaging students and alumni alike, we hope that you will join us for this week of celebrations. It also is an opportunity to visit classes, engage in design studio discussions and debates. The major event is the inauguration of the building on Tuesday, April 3 in the evening.
Please sign up for activities and class visits on myowlspace.com by March 21.
There will be a digital exhibit of current work of alumni — please contact Sarah Salem at email@example.com if you are interested in submitting your work for this exhibit. We hope to spend time during architecture week recording what you are doing, what you have made, and where you are, and will do so by mapping alumni activity.
If you are interested in signing up to attend classes and studio reviews that week, we can provide you with more information. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to catching up with you, sharing old memories and creating new ones.
