Updates from Vibha
Vibha is continuing her European travels in Spain now! Yesterday, she conducted a workshop at the Art Center in Tortosa, where she talked about her work as an architect, educator and artist while focusing her discussion "Architecture for Peace." Afterwards, she and the art director worked together with art students of various ages to encourage them to develop an art peace based on a reading Architecture of Memories by a famous Spanish Writer. Each student was tasked with preparing a painting of a city based on the reading. Her adventure continues in the Tortosa Library where she will give a lecture titled "Architecture for Peace: How to Heal the Wounded Warriors".
Congratulations to Professor Ryadi Adityavarman who has been awarded the Big 12 Fellowship award for 2014-2015.
