LiA Book drive update

7:29:00 AM


On Saturday September 4th, we met at the offices of Perkins+Will and starting working on sorting out the books collected for the "From an Architect's Bookshelf" program.
Jose Martinez (WRA Architects), Georgina Sierra (UTA), Jimmy Castellanos (Perkins+Will), Fred Peña (Perkins+Will), Ashley Peña, Isaac Robinson (BRW), Paola Contreras (HDR), Juan Navarro (Perkins +Will), Yesenia Blandon (Perkins+Will) and Claudia Barron (PBK Architects) volunteered to go over dozens of art, architecture and interior design books and have them ready to be distributed to our three beneficiary schools within the next weeks.
We would like to thank HALFF Associates for sponsoring breakfast for the volunteers. Thank you!

"From an Architect's Bookshelf" book donation program would provide local educational institutions with these books, journals and monographs that are essential for teaching and research of Architecture but too costly for most schools or scholars to afford. The program was envisioned as a library development project, with all the material donated through the LiA community, to a local high school(s).
LiA's goal was to collect 200 books, and we are pleased to announce that our architectural community did come forward to support education, create awareness of architecture and art and raise exposure of our profession as a career path, and collected 724 books and 330 architectural magazines!

Thank you to the Bookshelf Leaders at the architecture firms, that donated their time and effort to make the program known, and successfully collected so many books, to the group HACER of the City of Dallas and to everyone that participated.
We will be updating you on the distribution of the books.
