Architecture Prof to Lecture at UNLV

Jeanine Centuori, undergraduate chair of the School of Architecture and director of the Architecture + Civic Engagement Center at Woodbury University, will be speaking at UNLV as part of that university's architecture speaker series. Centuori's April 1 presentation will focus on an architecture of improvisational transformations.

In addition to her work at Woodbury, Centuori is a principal of UrbanRock Design, a practice that explores architecture and public art with a focus on public spaces and policy.  The body of work includes housing projects employing LA’s Small Lot Ordinance, houses, commercial renovations, public art planning, and a body of public art projects around the country.  Public art projects seek to sustain history, culture, and environment of place through the integration of imagery with building skins and other components.  Recent projects have been completed in Los Angeles, CA, Tucson, AZ, Tempe, AZ, Redding, CA, and Denver, CO.  Projects have been awarded, published, and exhibited nationally.  The practice is located at the Brewery Arts Complex near downtown Los Angeles.  Jeanine serves on the Board of Tierra del Sol, an educational facility for adults with mental and physical disabilities.
