College of Architecture Dedicates Famed Professor's Sculpture

Robert Bruno created his well-known house in Ransom Canyon from this model.

WHAT: An untitled 1974 steel sculpture – the model from which internationally recognized architect Robert Bruno created his famous, unfinished Steel House in Ransom Canyon – will be dedicated during a ceremony outside the Texas Tech University College of Architecture. The dedication extends to the land around the sculpture as well, which will be named the Robert Bruno Plaza in honor of the former architecture professor.

Before being moved to Texas Tech in January, the sculpture had been in an East Lubbock cotton field for 35 years. It was purchased and moved to its new location through the university's “Percent for Art” program.

The dedication is open to the public.

WHEN: 11:30 a.m. Monday (April 20)

WHERE: College of Architecture, 18th Street and Flint Avenue
