Ulrich Dangel, assistant professor at the University of Texas - Austin, will present "Baukunst: Sustainable Architecture in Vorarlberg," Friday, Nov. 19, at 5:30 p.m. in Gaines Hall 101.

Dangel received a bachelor's degree in architecture from Universitt Stuttgart in Germany and a master's degree in architecture from the University of Oregon. He is a registered architect in Germany and the United Kingdom and maintains a small design practice in Austin, Texas.

The lecture will portray the Vorarlberg, Austria region's architecture from its early beginnings to the present. Combining historical precedents and vernacular context with built examples, it will illustrate how today's architectural culture is rooted in Vorarlberg's longstanding tradition of timber construction and building craft. Dangel says the region's unique and sensitive approach to building has significant potential to serve as a contemporary model for sustainable movements in the United States and worldwide.

The lecture is sponsored by the School of Architecture.
