Below are only some of the highlights of the 2012–13 year: The School of Architecture passed the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accreditation review with flying colors. Congratulations to a recognition well deserved. Among significant achievements are Professor Ursula Emery McClure and her team of students winning the 2012 Charles E. Peterson Prize. By the middle of the 2013 fall semester—and after 87 years—Atkinson Hall will be fully accessible with an elevator and new bathrooms. Welcome back alumni new and old! The Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture continues its rank as number one in the nation for its undergraduate program, and the

faculty initiatives. They set high standards for the college and for LSU. The new International Studies Committee is working with the LSU International Studies Office to strengthen and expand study abroad, international exchanges, and outreach opportunities. We are already working on Haiti and China, and the world is the limit. My first semester at LSU has been a journey of discovery in a landscape shaped by unique traditions, a landscape filled with opportunity for a college of artists and designers. In last year’s message, “The Dean” asked that you “please don’t waver in your support to the College of Art + Design” at this crucial time of change, and I would add, of significant

renewal. Your support has indeed been indispensable. On behalf of the College of Art + Design, I thank you.

The following section of highlights (pages 6–11) reflect how the college continues to meet our goals and objectives, with the $70,000 grant for an advanced visual research and digital fabrication system; the Coastal Sustainability Studio (CSS) receipt of the prestigious 2012–13 Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) Collaborative Practice Award; the many faculty and student awards, recognitions, and faculty publications; specific examples of faculty and student community engagements; and more.



College of Art + Design Alkis P. Tsolakis has been selected to serve as the new dean of the LSU College of Art + Design. He began his appointment in January 2013. Tsolakis, a trained sculptor and architect, comes to LSU from Drury University, where he was a professor of architecture and acting director of the art department. The Louisiana Board of Regents awarded a $70,000 grant for an advanced visual research and digital fabrication system, providing the college with a state-of-the-art 3D scanner and CNC mill. The grant was written cooperatively between the dean’s office, Communication across the Curriculum (CxC), and Art + Design faculty committed to incorporating this technology into their courses. The equipment is managed in central locations within the college, the CxC Art + Design Studio and the Design Shop, for increased access and the greatest impact on student learning. The Coastal Sustainability Studio (CSS) was awarded the prestigious Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) Collaborative Practice Award for 2012–13. Housed in the College of Art + Design, CSS is a collaborative effort that involves multiple colleges and schools within the university, including engineers, coastal scientists, architects, and landscape architects. CSS was awarded a $600,000 contract to oversee the Resiliency Assistance Program for the State of Louisiana’s Office of Community Development (OCD) Disaster Recovery Unit (DRU).


School of Architecture The American Institute of Architects (AIA) named LSU School of Architecture alumni Trula Haley Remson (BArch ’90) and Jesse D. Cannon Jr. (BArch ’72) to its prestigious College of Fellows. Remson is the first LSU alumna to receive this honor. Associate Professor Jim Sullivan and four architecture students were awarded an honorable mention at the American Institute of Architects’ Rose Awards ceremony in July for their project, “The YMCA Baranco-Clark Pavilion.” The fourth–year architecture students, under the guidance of Professional in Residence William Doran, celebrated Mid City and the Laurel Street Fire Station by hosting a community–wide potluck. The intent of the event was to celebrate the history of Mid City and showcase the site as a valuable public space. Emogene Pliner Associate Professor of Architecture Ursula Emery McClure and several of her students were awarded the 2012 Charles E. Peterson Prize for their entry “Fort Proctor.” The teams worked throughout the fall 2011 and spring 2012 semesters to complete the drawings of the historic Fort Proctor site.


School of Art Senior graphic design students led by Assistant Professor Richard Doubleday worked with the East Baton Rouge Parish Office of the Mayor-President to help design promotional materials for three of the office’s community engagement programs: BR Proud, Bank on Baton Rouge, and Healthy BR. The Glassell Gallery at the Shaw Center of the Arts opened the School of Art’s 2012–13 season with Social(dis)order, an exhibition that brought together recent and historical works that explore the power technology-enabled social networks have over traditional social constructs. Alumni Kellye Eisworth (Photography, ’12), Kimberly Bates (Painting, ’09), and Emily LaCour (Painting, ’11), as well as Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Courtney Barr, were among the winners of the ninth annual Forum 35 Art Melt at the Shaw Center for the Arts, held in July 2012 in Baton Rouge. Several graphic design students were honored at the 2013 Baton Rouge ADDY Awards, taking home Student Best of Show as well as numerous gold and silver Student ADDY Awards. In addition, students from the Graphic Design Student Office, or GDSO, won gold and silver Student ADDY Awards. The entire junior graphic design class received a gold ADDY Award for their typographic calendar design created in the Applied Typography class taught by Professor Lynne Baggett and Assistant Professor Courtney Barr. Undergraduate sculpture students showed their work in an exhibit called Art in the Public Sphere at the Shaw Center for the Arts in April 2013. In addition to the visiting artists who appeared as part of the college’s lecture series, the School of Art hosted the following artists: John F. Simon Jr., Kurt Gohde, Kremena Todorova, Matt King, Gregory Sholette, Andy Fedak, Peter & Donna Thomas, Joey Lehman Morris, and Sarah Pomeroy.


Department of Interior Design Senior interior design students presented their Master Plan Study to Baton Rouge’s Main Street Market, also known as BREADA (Big River Economic & Agricultural Development Alliance). The presentation, held in the College of Art + Design atrium, highlighted the partnership between the Department of Interior Design and its stakeholders in the Main Street Market Place Master Planning Initiative. At the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) 2013 Student Conference in Houston, senior Madeline Drone and her group placed first and senior Carolyn Allain and her group placed third. The trip to Houston included two full days of visits to firms, project sites, and workshops; inspirational speakers; portfolio reviews with professionals from the industry; and a Table-Top Expo, where firms and industry leaders were available to chat about their work and potential job opportunities. At the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) South Central Student Chapter Career Day, student Logan Wheeler placed first for her computer-generated rendering and student Madeline Drone and student Sarah Allee-Walsh placed first and second, respectively, for corporate design. Katie Easley received honorable mention in the hospitality design section.


Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture For the third consecutive year, DesignIntelligence magazine ranked the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture number one in the country for its undergraduate program. The graduate program tied with Cornell University at number three. Associate Professors Bradley Cantrell and Wes Michaels received Professional Communications Awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects, or ASLA, for their book, Digital Draw-

ing for Landscape Architecture, published by Wiley. School of Landscape Architecture alumni received nine ASLA awards across multiple categories, and students Joshua Brooks and Chad Caletka (BLA ‘12), were awarded for their Capstone projects, completed under the direction of (now-retired) Professor Van Cox and Associate Professor Lake Douglas. Fifth-year students Martin Moser, Michael Porter, and Kevin Kimball created a design for the 2012 winner of the WBRZ Yard Makeover Contest, worth $20,000.

Metropolis magazine featured the new Rosa F. Keller Library and Community Center in the Broadmoor section of New Orleans and the work by Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture Wes Michaels and School of Architecture alumni Allen Eskew, Steve Dumez, and Mark Ripple.

Places magazine published Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture Kristi Cheramie’s “Lost Graves of the Morganza Floodway,” an article that highlights her work on the Morganza Spillway. The article was coauthored by Mike Pasquier, assistant professor of religious studies, and features work by Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture graduate students Matthew Seibert and Ben Wellington.

Faculty Highlights Architecture Professor J. Michael Desmond’s book, The Architecture of LSU, was published by LSU Press in May 2013. The publication was in large part made possible by a $180,000 Campus Heritage Grant from the Getty Foundation in Los Angeles, received in 2006. In The Architecture of

LSU, Desmond chronicles the university’s architectural legacy, dating back to the Renaissance, and he shares the architectural principles that guided the creation of one of the most unique academic environments in North America. Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Richard Doubleday was one of the contributors to the recently released Phaidon Archive of Graphic

Design, a reference “book in a box” that features 500 graphic designs from around the world. In December 2012, Doubleday’s solo poster exhibit “,” opened at the University Creative Park Exhibition Center in Beijing, China. Associate Professor of Art Ed Smith was profiled in the October/November 2012 issue of Garden

& Gun magazine. Smith had two solo exhibits in 2012–13.
