Senior Spotlight: Elizabeth Metcalfe

Elizabeth Metcalfe (Georgetown, KY) researched the relationship between architecture and memory (placemaking) within the context of Georgetown College. Below is an aerial view of Georgetown's campus in the 1960s, featuring four buildings labeled as placemakers: Giddings Hall, Pawling Hall, Rucker Hall, and John L. Hill Chapel. Other buildings explored for their placemaking characteristics include the old Chapel-Library-Gymnasium building and Rucker Village. The slide lecture will be Friday, March 22 at 5:30pm in the Wilson Art Building, WAB room 104 (no reservations needed, but the seating is limited).

"Placemaking refers to to the dynamic process of integrating human experience into a space, so that people want to interact with and contribute to the collective experience of the place."
-- Elizabeth Matcalfe
