      Chris Wilson And Jose Zelaya: Plazas Of New Mexico

      Community Calendar Member Event

      Mesa Public Library's Authors Speak Series presents UNM Professor of Cultural Landscape Studies, Chris Wilson and book collaborator and architect Jose Zelaya. J. B. Jackson Professor of Cultural Landscape Studies at the UNM School of Architecture and Planning in Albuquerque, and founding director of its Historic Preservation and Regionalism Program, Chris Wilson has written widely on architecture, tourism and the politics of culture in the Southwest, and on cultural landscape studies. His current focus is on the role of the on-going reurbanization of the U.S. as a central sustainability strategy. His collaboration with Miguel Gandert, Stefanos Polyzoides and others, Center Place: The Plazas of New Mexico, has been published by Trinity University Press. The book analyzes the history of Pueblo, Hispanic and Anglo planning traditions--exemplified by 22 classic communities--and surveys work over the past 15 years to revitalize existing community spaces and to create new ones. Chris Wilson holds an M.A. from UNM in Art History, specialization in American Architectural History and a B.A. from Yale University in Philosophy and Psychology. Images from the Plazas book will be on display in the Mesa Art Gallery during December.
