Texas Tech University College of Architecture at El Paso has hired Robert Alexander González to be its director and an associate professor.
González, who specializes in Pan-American and Latin American modern architecture, as well as the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, has taught at Florida International University, Tulane University, University of California, Berkeley and Arizona State University.
"His broad experience in architectural education and his scholarship in Pan-American architecture and culture make him the ideal person to lead the College of Architecture as it embraces the border area," said Michael Peters, associate dean for external programs.
In addition to teaching, González is the founding editor of the international journal Architecture and Urbanism in the Las Américas and is the author of the recently released "Designing Pan-America: U.S. Architectural Visions for the Western Hemisphere."
