Gould Hall Symposium

Yesterday evening’s symposium, Gould Hall: Past Present Future, was a huge success. As part of the UW Department of Architecture Centennial Celebration, the UW College of Built Environments community gathered in Gould Hall to learn more about the unique building which has served as its home base since the building’s opening in 1971. Audience members congregated in Gould Hall’s central court, and along its open banisters, bridges, and walkways as the evening commenced with a panel discussion with the building’s original architects, Dan Streissguth, Gene Zema and Grant Hildebrand.

Testimony to its continued relevancy, Gould Hall is not a static building, and has accommodated an ongoing design process over the past five decades. Later in the evening, UW Architecture Department Chair and Gould Pavilion (2014-15) architect Dave Miller, professor and SHKS Architects partner David Strauss, and professors Kimo Griggs and Jim Nicholls joined the discussion with their perspectives on the evolution of Gould Hall as it has grown with the Department of Architecture and College of Built Environments.

The evening continued with a reception following the panel discussion.
