UT Arlington, The Dallas Morning News Create Joint Architecture Professor-critic Position

DALLAS, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Texas at Arlington and The Dallas Morning News are partnering in an innovative joint appointment of a School of Architecture faculty member who also will serve as architecture critic for the news organization. The initial appointment will be for three years, renewable and split evenly between the News and UT Arlington.

At UT Arlington, the faculty member will serve as a research fellow of the Dillon Center and as a non-tenured professor who generally teaches one course in each of the fall and spring semesters. This individual also will conduct and publish longer-term research through the recently established David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture, which promotes public discourse about architecture in the North Texas region.

"The position advances the University's commitment to community engagement and will afford the candidate the opportunity to develop and teach graduate level seminars on writing, architecture, and urbanism within the School of Architecture and in cross-disciplinary offerings to the wider University community," said Don Gatzke, dean of the School of Architecture.

As The Dallas Morning News' new architecture critic, this individual will write about local, national and international developments in design, urbanism and environmental development, addressing issues of urban growth and quality of life in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The new critic also will develop an online presence through blogging, twitter and chats and represent The Dallas Morning News on architectural issues to other media outlets.

"In a vibrant and growing city like Dallas, architecture is an important element of our identity. The News remains committed to its coverage of local arts and architecture," said Bob Mong, editor of The Dallas Morning News. "Partnering with a respected School of Architecture like the one at UT Arlington will enable the News to provide our readers the best context and analysis about our local architectural developments."

Gatzke added, "We are delighted to be partnering with The Dallas Morning News to foster the public's understanding of sustainable development, urbanism and built environments. We know that increased awareness and a deeper understanding of these critical issues can improve the quality of life in North Texas."

The joint position is the second major venture between The Dallas Morning News and UT Arlington this year. The University launched the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture in February 2012 after receiving the papers of the author and longtime Dallas Morning News architecture critic, who died in 2010. The News was a major sponsor of the first Dillon Symposium held in April 2012.

"Our readers will benefit enormously from the re-emergence of this position. Its relevance can bring the patterns of growth all around us into better perspective," added Mong.
