The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture (UTSOA) is a college within The University of Texas at Austin, with its major facilities located on the main university campus in Austin, Texas.
UTSOA's dean is Frederick R. Steiner, a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Dean Steiner received his Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in city and regional planning and a Master of Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. He earned a Master of Community Planning and a B.S. in Design from the University of Cincinnati. Dean Steiner was also awarded an honorary M.Phil. in Human Ecology from the (College of the Atlantic ). In Fall 2013, Dean Steiner served as the William A. Bernoudy Architect in Residence at the American Academy in Rome.
UTSOA has more than 700 graduate and undergraduate students. There are approximately 50 full-time, and 35 adjunct and part-time faculty members. The student/faculty ratio is 11:1. The school has six faculty members that are Rome Fellows, including Dean Fritz Steiner, adjunct professor Coleman Coker, associate professors Hope Hasbruck, Mirka Benes, Nichole Wiedemann, and most recently, 2014-15 recipient Vincent C. Snyder.
The school is located within the historical core of The University of Texas at Austin campus. As part of the 40 Acres, the college fully occupies Goldsmith Hall, Sutton Hall, and Battle Hall. In 2007, Battle Hall was listed as one of America’s Top 150 Favorite Works of Architecture by The American Institute of Architects (AIA), however, the building, according to the dean, "is suffering from the symptoms of old age and desperately needs rehabilitation."〔(【引用サイトリンク】first=Frederick R. )〕 UTSOA also occupies part of the West Mall Office Building. Efforts for the preservation of Battle Hall and the West Mall Office building began in 2010.
Two of these buildings were designed by Cass Gilbert and another by Paul Philippe Cret. Cret is credited as the designer of the campus master plan for The University of Texas at Austin, and helped to build the Beaux-Arts-style Main Building tower. Cret collaborated with Herbert M. Greene (of Texas firm Greene, LaRoche, and Dahl) and UTSOA Class of 1921 alumnus Robert Leon White for several of his projects.
UTSOA celebrated its centennial in 2010.
In 1910, The University of Texas at Austin College of Engineering began offering a professional degree in architecture. Two years later, the program had over 30 registered students. The school was expanded over the next two decades under the leadership of Frederick Giesecke and Goldwin Goldsmith. In 1925, the school became the first in Texas to be accepted for membership in the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture. The program was accredited in 1935 by the National Architectural Accreditation Board. The school moved into its permanent home in the Architecture Building (Goldsmith Hall) in 1933 and became the School of Architecture in 1948. The school's first graduate is Bertram Ernest Giesecke.
