Hometown Maps: Where in the World Do Architects Come From?

Tuesday, October 6, at 4 p.m.
Otto G. Richter Library Reading Room, 1st Floor
1300 Memorial Drive | Coral Gables, FL 33146

This event is sponsored by University of Miami Libraries and the School of Architecture. Free and open to the public.

Since 1997 students at the School of Architecture have commenced their program studies in architecture and urban design by researching and analyzing the distinctive characteristics of the places they are most familiar with—their own hometowns. Using resources from the University of Miami Libraries, such as historical and contemporary maps, GIS tools, and Internet resources, students incorporate architectural, historical, environmental and geological details to create graphic layouts of their hometown. Please join us to view the exhibition of hometown maps by former and current students and celebrate the diverse and far-reaching talents of the University of Miami and its School of Architecture. The exhibition will feature an interactive digital map of the world that has been specially created by UML librarians and School of Architecture faculty, allowing one to further experience the imaginative ways in which students have interpreted the places around the world they call home.
