TEXAS SOCIETY OF ARCHITECTS | AIA 70TH ANNUAL CONVENTION

POWER The word itself conjures up many different images, from a broad, universal perspective, down to the most personal, day-to-day level. We may traditionally think of it in terms of authority and control, but a more fitting direction of thought for the TSA Convention theme is in terms of the ability to act or produce an effect. It was pure serendipity that the selection of Power coincided with Houston’s hosting of the TSA Convention, yet the two are intrinsically tied. The city’s development from a small backwater settlement into a prosperous metropolis of international significance took place within a relatively short period of 170 years. Its economic history helps explain why Houston is the city of destiny. Until the turn of the century, Houston’s economy was largely based on agriculture and ranching, but in 1901, Spindletop and the discovery of oil completely overshadowed existing economic bases. The development of this potent natural resource then became the most significant layer of Houston’s economy. “Houston” and “Texas” became synonymous with “oil.” As oil revolutionized social structures and priorities at home and abroad, it served to propel the United States toward economic and political leadership in the world. Two major events contributed to Houston’s economic advancement. The 1900 tidal wave and hurricane that struck Galveston Island caused the deaths of thousands and massive destruction. The aftermath served to revitalize efforts to set up Houston as a major port. Money from Congress and the Texas Legislature’s establishment of the Port of Houston Authority led to the opening of the then 25-foot deep ship channel in 1914. The other event that worked to Houston’s favor was when the nation turned to Houston for the oil and fuel needed for the World War I effort. By this time, the expanded port was capable of handling vital overseas shipments. The first deepwater vessel arrived in August, 1915, and the first refinery was set up along the ship channel in 1918. The growth of the automobile industry–the largest manufacturing industry of all time–lead to increased demands for oil, and production capacity expanded to fill the automobile’s insatiable maw. The 1920s were an era of prosperity, however, the Great Depression of the 1930s tried Houston’s economic strength. Although business activities declined through the U.S., Houston’s economy was relatively stable. Not one bank failed. The 1940s brought greater diversification in paper, cement and steel. World War II pushed the city to great expansion becoming the center of the explosive development in the

petrochemical industry. In the post-war period, the Texas Medical Center became a reality, elevating Houston to international prominence in the field of medicine. NASA chose Houston for its center and Houston became known as “Space City.” The 1960s saw a dramatic increase in construction and the establishment in Houston of divisional and service headquarters by some of the nation’s largest corporations. Houston today is not only the oil capital of America, but it is also the world’s energy capital, with leaders in research and development shaping its future. Using this impressive history as a backdrop, TSA offers an opportunity to think about power: our collective ability as architects to impact our state; our individual knowledge and skill sets that are unique and versatile; and our obligations to use what we know in positive ways that move and energize others to action. That is the essence of power.

A Word from the President Welcome to the 70th Annual TSA Convention and Design Products & Ideas Expo. Power is the theme and given Houston’s rich history, I cannot imagine a more appropriate theme for a city synonymous with energy and energy production that has also long served as an international center for architecture. Houston’s skyline features iconic office towers, venues for the performing and visual arts, world-renowned medical facilities and university centers. Well-planned tours feature a wide selection of work in the city as well as surrounding communities.

Bill Reeves 2009 TSA President

The convention provides incredible learning opportunities including general sessions with keynote speakers Dr. Lowell Catlett and Dr. Scott Tinker. Selected seminars and workshops offer practical solutions to the issues facing our profession, celebrate creativity and innovation, and provide a chance to dialog with industry experts. I hope that you will find time to meet with old friends and seek out new ones at various special events such as the TAC Mixer, Emerging Professionals Gathering, the university alumni receptions, and Presidents’ Gala. I especially look forward to seeing you at Saturday’s PowerHouseParty at the House of Blues. So, please join me as we experience the Power of Learning, Fellowship and Design at TSA’s 70th anniversary gathering.

Electricity Scott W. Tinker, Ph.D., Director, Bureau of Economic Geology, Austin The bridge from a fossil-energy present to an alternate-energy future will span many decades. As with the building of any bridge, a solid foundation is vital to move the world ahead in a reasonably smooth fashion. Accelerating an energy transition heedlessly via poorly-informed policy could lead to unintended energy and economic instability. Successful bridge-building recognizes the delicate interplay among energy, the environment, the economy, and public energy policy. Energy diversity includes coal with sequestration, expanded natural gas and nuclear, and investments in other alternate energy forms to bring them up to scale over many decades. Increasing alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, and biomass to meet massive global demand is a formidable, technology-dominated, investment-heavy task, but a task that can be accomplished with wellconsidered energy policy. Dr. Tinker will define the global energy scene, dispel some of the media myths associated with energy, and bring focus to the politics and policies affecting the future of energy. Grounded by 17 years in the oil and gas industry prior to coming to UT in 2000, he serves as 2009 President of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. Session 109036 1 LUH

Favorite 50 Last fall, the Houston Chronicle and AIA Houston asked readers to choose their favorite ten buildings from a list of 50 of the city’s most iconic buildings. Cast your own ballot for a new top ten list and enjoy photographs of Houston’s best, from the turn of the century through post-modern, to the newest of projects by current architects. The TSA-selected list will be revealed on October 25 via TSA’s social media outlets (blog, Facebook and Twitter).

Earn All 18 AIA/CES Learning Units with Your General Registration Fee Architects who are required to attain 18 units to maintain membership in the AIA can get all of them easily and without additional tickets for workshops or tours. To ensure 18 credits are earned, attend a session in every Professional Development Session timeslot starting with the 2:00 p.m. sessions on Thursday and ending with the 3:30 p.m. sessions on Saturday, and also attend at least three presentations in the Expo given by AIA/CES Providers on Thursday and Friday. In doing so, participants receive 15.5 hours from TSA and at least three hours through the Expo Education Center. Plan your schedule carefully to avoid conflicts.

$99K House Competition Exhibit In 2008, AIA Houston joined the Rice Design Alliance to sponsor a competition to create an innovative design for a small house that is affordable, sustainable, and energy efficient. The winning entry was built in Houston’s Fifth Ward neighborhood in hopes that construction of one prototypical affordable house in the community would initiate revitalization. Five finalists were selected from 182 entrants. A team from Hybrid/ORA, Seattle, Washington submitted the winning entry. Aside from this illuminating display of entries, you may purchase the $99K House Book to add to your home or office library. Sponsored by CenterPoint Energy

[Volunteer to Help a Student] Host a Student TSA is calling on Houston area architects to host students attending the 2009 TSA Convention in their homes on Thursday and Friday nights (October 22 & 23) providing lodging, breakfast on Saturday, and transportation to and from the convention center if needed. Please check the appropriate box on the convention registration form if you are willing to help a student (or two) limit their cost to attend, and likely make a friend for life.

Mentor a Student TSA members have a unique opportunity to spend some convention time with an architecture student. Student registrants will let TSA know if they wish to be paired with a TSA architect or associate member at the convention. Your commitment requires only a little time and a small amount of money (otherwise interpreted as an investment in the future of the profession). Mentors will spend a few hours on Friday (preferably in the Expo) helping the student understand what convention offers and how to get the most from their convention experience, introducing them to your colleagues, and answering questions they may have related to practice. On Saturday, mentors and their students attend the Annual Awards Luncheon together with tickets purchased by you for yourself and the student. Students and their mentors/hosts will be briefly recognized during the event. This is a unique opportunity to further introduce an architecture student to the profession; they will gain something not found in campus life. Please help TSA fulfill this worthy goal to interested and engaged students. If you are willing to mentor a student and can fulfill the above commitments, indicate your intent on the convention registration form and purchase an Awards Luncheon ticket for yourself and the student/mentee.

Thank you in advance for stepping into this highly interactive and vital role. For more information, contact Suzette Lipford at 512.478.7386 or slipford@texasarchitect.org.

Its graphic impression graced the cover of the November/December 1974 issue of Texas Architect. Original design documents include familiar names like Koetter, Tharp, Cowell, Caudill, Rowlett, Scott, Newhaus and Tayler. Its story includes being the host of the 1974 TSA Convention, the 1990 Economic Summit of Industrialized nations, the 1992 Republican National Convention, and the 17th Congress of the World Energy Council in 1998. The hotel recently completed a $40-million transformation including all 947 guestrooms, a redesigned LobbiBar, and 64,000 sf of refreshed meeting space. Guest rooms welcome you with rich hues of chocolate, silver, and beige and are fitted with the signature Hyatt Grand Bed.

Convention rates: $149.00 single or double occupancy (current tax rate is 17%) (Note: Because TSA is contractually obligated to the Hyatt Regency Houston for a minimum number of guest rooms occupied, you are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this special rate and the opportunity to stay at this phenomenal property. TSA will provide shuttle transportation between the Hyatt and the George R. Brown Convention Center. The rate includes a $3.00 per night fee that is rebated back to TSA to offset ground transportation costs.)
