Architecture at the Umlauf Series - Thursday, March 4th, 7:00PM

The opening program of the Fourth Season of the Architecture at the Umlauf Series takes this place Thursday, March 4th 1st. Doors open at  at 7:00 pm.

The event marks the beginning of the fourth of this incredibly popular program featuring local Austin Architects in a beautifully intimate setting. The monthly series was founded and is produced by two of my associates at AvenueOne Properties; Scott Harvey and Carla Umlauf (granddaughter of the esteemed sculptor) and is sponsored by our firm, AvenueOne Properties and hosted by The Umlauf Torchbearers. The lectures take place at the beautiful Umlauf Sculpture Garden Pavilion; Robert Steinbomer, AIA is the featured speaker this month. Catering will be provided by one of Austin's coolest East Side Restaurants Blue Dahlia Bistro. There is a minimal charge of $5.00 for the event but is free to museum members. Come out and enjoy an excellent talk in this beautiful venue. You might want to show up early because this event has been at capacity at all of the previous lectures. See you on Thursday!

Toula Thanks so much for dropping by, this event is always a good time!

Marchel I appreciate that and we are very fortunate to live in a city that enthusiastically supports the arts and architecture!

Dale Actually with your background I am not at all surprised that you gave an interest in Architecture. Thanks for stopping by!

Jeff This program has been a great way for different architects to meet directly with the public and discuss the different approaches to architecture and it has become so popular that it's always a capacity crowd! And yes I usually attend to help set up, see the program and also it's an excellent time to network!

Dorie Thanks, this is a great program and it's just another great part of living in Austin to have something like this available. Have a great weekend!

I've attended the Series in the past and recommend it highly.  The Umlauf Sculpture Gardens is really a very special place in Austin.  Couple that beautiful setting with a great topic and you have a winner.  Keep up the good work.
