Julia Robinson (Architecture) presented two papers at the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) conference earlier this month in Washington, DC. Robinson's papers were entitled "Complex Housing in the Netherlands: Playing with Typology to Generate New Forms" and "Analysis of Case Studies Using a Comparative Method." The illustrations for "Complex Housing in the Netherlands" were provided by research assistants Hans-Christian J. Karlberg, Erin Lilli (both Architecture graduate students), and Austin Lukes (Architecture undergraduate student).
Robinson will present a paper -- "Increasing Density, Diversity, and Delight: Complex Housing in the Netherlands" later in June in Leipzig, Germany.
In May 2010, Robinson traveled with Leslie Van Duzer (Architecture) to Japan for professional development. They studied contemporary and traditional architecture in Tokyo, Kyoto, Takayama, Nikko, Shirakawago, and Toba.
