Virginia Tech 50th Anniversary Celebration
Alumni, faculty and students from the Virginia Tech College of Architecture + Design will come together to hold their 50th Anniversary Celebration of the College, a culmination of a yearlong anniversary celebration of achievements and history. Will Belcher of LAND COLLECTIVE has been invited to speak at the event, which will take place on Friday, September 5, 2014. The theme of the weekend is based on the metaphor of old riverbed/new water: a solid foundation of fifty years of pedagogy which guides the fluidity of fresh ideas and ever-evolving students and faculty. Will’s talk, titled Four Rivers and a Campus will focus on his portfolio of work along waterfronts, focusing on the social dynamics of urban spaces.
