Sherri (Arnold) Privitera, RA, ’94, ’96 Named UNL Alumni Master

Sherri Privitera, RA, has dedicated more than 20 years to collegiate sports projects in the sports architecture industry. Her involvement in more than 65 projects at 50 universities, including the $266 million McLane Stadium at Baylor University, has made her one of the leading architects in sports facilities. As both a mother and the senior principal at the Kansas City-based architecture firm Populous, Privitera has become well versed at what she calls work-life integration. 

“The word balance is hard for women in particular. I like to call it work-life integration because there isn’t ever balance. Sometimes you need to spend more time in your home or personal life, and sometimes you need to spend more time on your work deadlines.”

“…let us regard the interior not as a space created by protective surfaces and moods, but rather as a porous field defined by realms and structures. Otherness will trickle in and a productive contamination will ensue.” Florian Idenburg; Solid Objectives…Order, Edge, Aura.

The third year interior design students recently finished up a five-week project exploring the role, identity and potential of a public interior. Their site: the former Van Bloom Travel Building, 2135 E O Street, whose iconic bubble window facing O Street and west façade exposure to the Rock Island Back Path, lent itself to layered urban fringe public conditions. This creates a specific design challenge question; how can the interior built environment be positioned to engage and connect the public to global issues at a local scale? More-
The middle of the spring semester is upon us, which means many studios are having project reviews. I have always enjoyed participating in studio reviews because there is always so much to talk about. At these moments, students put their best work on the table for discussion. These moments reveal many things about what the student’s value, or are coming to value. It is also a time that the critics reveal the same thing. The conversation about the strengths and weaknesses of the project is in the foreground discussion, but underneath this conversation is another one that can reveal even more interesting critical and aesthetic differences.
