College of Architecture, Planning and Design

APDesign Newsletter 11.26.12


Christine Ten Eyck, principal of Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, is on campus today to deliver a Landscape Architecture Distinguished Lecture at 4 p.m. in the Little Theatre in the K-State Student Union. The event is free and open to the public.

Ten Eyck, after a raft trip down the Colorado River in 1985, moved west from Texas to Arizona where she established a thriving landscape architectural practice emphasizing regional residential, hospitality and public projects. After 22 years in Arizona, she returned to Texas and started the Austin studio in 2007.

With a mission of connecting the urban dweller with nature, her firm strives to create transformative landscapes that celebrate the region, culture of its people and the sacred paths of water in the arid Southwest. She and her firm have won three honor awards from the national American Society of Landscape Architects in the last four years for the ASU Biodesign Institute, the University of Arizona College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Living Laboratory and the Arizona State University Polytechnic Academic Complex. 


The fourth year IAPD studio invites you to join us in wearing a flower on December 3 in memory of Rachael Stueder who passed away over last winter break. We would like to take this day to remember her and to remind students about safe driving. 


IASC Safety Week

As the semester is coming to an end, the IA Student Council would like to remind everyone to remain safe and healthy. This following week we will be sending out posters that will provide tips on how to stay healthy and safe. One of the days we will be hosting our second Holiday Shindig. This will give you a chance to get out of studio and take a five-minute break to just relax. Keep on the look out for the poster. Everyone is welcome.
