The connection between Oregon and the United Kingdom just lost a champion. Architect Rick Mather, 75, who sponsored six UO students as interns in his award-winning firm, Rick Mather Architects (RMA), passed away April 20 after a short illness. Classmates, former faculty members, and colleagues were stunned as news spread.

Celebrating student work:
Fully ten percent of participants at the 2013 Architectural Research Centers Consortium Spring Conference at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte were A&AA faculty members, current students, or alumni. Given that the theme of the conference was visibility, the UO certainly took the concept to heart.
Architecture Adjunct Instructor Jolie Kerns has been awarded a $6,000 research grant from the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society for her project "Interrogating Public Space: Architecture of Women's Health Centers."
This lecture is presented by Judith Sheine, UO Department of Architecture Professor and Department Head.

The new Facade Integrated Technologies (FIT) Testing Facility celebrated its completion April 15 with a “soft opening” that showcased the laboratory’s presence on the entire south face of Onyx Bridge. An "envelope" on the building’s façade is wired with sensors measuring light intensity, solar radiation, wind speed, acoustics and more — all part of an effort to study building performance and how design and systems affect occupants.
Oregon BEST has awarded a commercialization grant to a team of industry-university researchers co-developing a window coating that could cut infrared light and heat transfer through window glass while allowing more visible light to enter—saving millions of dollars in lighting costs. The coating will be tested at the UO’s Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory, a signature research facility of Oregon BEST headed by UO professor G.Z. “Charlie” Brown.
