Transcript With all systems "go," architecture students spin out on their "Great Red Pleasure Machine," above. The op-istic collage is the product of an architecture happening, above right. Dean George, far right, appeases students with lectures on the lawn. Architecture College Center of Protest, Controversial Upheava This archie is all tied up in a visiting Yale lecturer's happening, above. A field trip takes archies on a tour of the Jenkins-Hoffman Fireman Training Center, right. 260 Threatened with the loss of accreditation by the National Architecture Accreditation Board, Dean Eugene George made initial moves, last fall, toward upgrading the College of Architecture. In his first year with UH, new classroom desks, copying machines and photographic equipment were ordered. In addition, classes were expanded to the old engineering office building. While the accreditation question was not settled until the summer, the NAAB did state that the UH College of Architecture has the "greatest resource potential in the state of Texas." In order to better develop this potential, Dean George requested changes toward general architecture education, with a coordinated program in design, an improved course sequence plan and an elective program with more choice of a minor. Throughout the year there was large scale dissatisfaction on the part of architecture students toward their dean and their department's progress toward accreditation. In view of this, Dean George initiated Thursday dialogues to improve communication between students and faculty. Many students challenged the ad- ministraiton's method of operation within the college. They questioned such moves as the proposed banning of outside jobs for architecture students and faculty and the discontinuation of their lecture series, and others, as not in the best interest of the students or the college. Numerous meetings were set up with the faculty, President Phillip Hoffman, Dean of Faculties John All- red and George. These meetings, with their lists of grievances from both sides, ran into finals of the spring semester. At the year's end the outcome was left to rest on both the result of the summer's NAAB report and the actions of the administration. 261
