School of Architecture

Published by The University of Texas at Arlington


In 1991 a group of graduate architecture students, the faculty and the administration at the University of Texas at Arlington together agreed to collect and publish students' work. Recent Archives is the result. It is a representation of the best projects completed during the last five years that have not been lost or misplaced following the end of a term. Recent Archives also is a collection of comments and criticism by practicing architects that critique the school, the projects, and the nature of architectural education in the context of the rest of the world. The goal of this collection of essays and student projects is to become a reference resource of student design projects for students and teachers. Ultimately, however, it is hoped that the publication of this journal will encourage a critical examination by those unfamiliar with the school.
