Texas Tech University College of Architecture at El Paso today welcomes its new director and associate professor, Robert Alexander González.
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 at Berkeley and Arizona State University.
Michael Peters, associate dean for external programs, said Texas Tech is fortunate to have González as the new director of architecture in El Paso.
“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,” Peters said.
In addition to teaching, González is the founding editor of international journal, Architecture and Urbanism in the Las Américas and author of recently released book, “Designing Pan-America: U.S. Architectural Visions for the Western Hemisphere.”
