Harrison Lecture: Jack Travis

October 9, 2020
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

About this event

Mississippi State's School of Architecture is hosting Jack Travis, principal architect of New York-based Jack Travis Architects, for the fall Harrison Lecture Series.

Travis established his namesake design studio in June 1985. His work encourages investigation into black history and culture and includes forms, motifs, materials and colors that reflect this heritage.

In recent years, Travis has broadened his interests beyond cultural content strategies to sustainable in environmental design methodologies, alternative educational practices such as a community design studio and the entrance of more students of color into academia and the profession. In 2004, Travis received an AIA Fellowship, and in 2006, was inducted into the Council of Elders of the National Organization of Minority Architects, the highest honor that each organization bestows upon its individual members.

The lecture will be held virtually via Webex. Registration is required and can be completed online. Register for free
