Maine Architect and Norwich Alum Gavin Engler to Speak at NU

Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art will host the final event in its 2014–15 Lecture Series on Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. in Chaplin Hall Gallery.

In a lecture titled “Since: Trials in Architecture Since Graduation,” Gavin Engler, an associate at Carol A. Wilson Architect in Maine, will discuss the work of this award-winning firm, his own experiences in the field of architecture and the challenges of building modern architecture in Maine.

Engler received his Master of Architecture degree (May 2008) and a bachelor’s degree (May 2007) in Architectural Studies from Norwich University. He was awarded the Certificate of Merit from the Henry Adams Fund and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) School Medal for his graduate work. He was named one of Maine’s Forty under 40 in 2012. Beyond his work with Carol A. Wilson Architect, Engler co-curated Maine’s show Maine Modern: 50 Years of Modern Architecture in Maine.

The firm where Engler works, Carol A. Wilson Architect, has received many national and local awards, including multiple AIA Merit Awards as well as Sustainable Design Awards from the Boston Architectural Society and AIA New York. The firm’s work has been widely published nationally. Carol Wilson has lectured on topics ranging from “Women on Water: Working on the Coast of Maine,” to “Between Creating and Making: The Interstitial Role of the Architect.” The work of Carol A. Wilson Architect has a strong connection to the landscape and helps to situate northern New England as a major venue for modern architecture.

Engler’s lecture will be held in the Gallery of Chaplin Hall at 4:00pm on Friday, April 10, and is free and open to the public.
