Zube Lecture: 'Informal Armatures' with David Gouverneur
November 16, 2017
4:00 pm-5:00 pm
Olver Design Building
UMass Amherst Campus
David Gouverneur will present "Informal Armatures: Shaping the Self-Constructed City," derived from research on the book Planning and Design for Future Informal Settlements/Shaping the Self-Constructed City.
The Zube lecture series is named for Erv Zube, former head of LARP from 1974 to 1980. Professor Zube is internationally known for his leadership in developing a culture of academic research in the profession of landscape architecture. His research made numerous seminal contributions to landscape planning theory and practice. Erv left UMass for the University of Arizona, where he continued his renowned research and teaching until he passed away in 2001.
Erv and his wife Margaret endowed at UMass in 2004 to “bring scholars to the department to stimulate and enrich our academic community in landscape architecture and planning." The Zube endowment has been supported generously by alumni, students and faculty.
We honor their leadership and generosity through the lecture series which continues to enrich our community with the thoughts and works of local, national and international academic and professional leaders. The department is pleased to accept donations of any amount to continue to build and enlarge the endowment.
