SHPA SUMMER SERIES:
SHPA New Student Liaison, Morgan Quirk, spent her summer working as an intern for Austin-based historic preservation consulting company Hardy Heck Moore & Associates. Here is the view from her desk where she geo-referenced maps of Oahu from 1778-1850 in GIS to create shapefile data for known settlements, trails, agriculture, missions, and the historic coastline. These maps are part of a larger written historic context statement for the south coast of Oahu from 300 AD to 1979.

is SonaKrete, a spray-applied acoustical finish system made from 80% post-consumer paper. The product leverages inherent properties of cellulose, such as the airspace between fibers, to achieve noise reduction and thermal performance. SonaKrete, made by the International Cellulose Corporation, is applied in layers up to a final thickness of 3/4", on a variety of substrates including drywall, plaster, and concrete. It is most appropriate for ceilings, and in final form is seamless and hardened. Sonakrete is available in custom integral colors, and is fire-rated. #materialslab

It’s sunny out....I have my chai...listening to The Goblet Of Fire audio book... working on my artwork = my PERFECT Sunday morning💛. It’s also severely inhibiting my ability to get to school and do homework 😬. But working on art is what keeps me sane. #mentalhealth #gradschoollife #utsoa #withlove
My first attempt at hydro-graphic printing. #UTSOA

Just named ENR Texas & Louisiana's Best Project 2018 in the Cultural/Worship category. I think we'd all agree it's some well deserved recognition for Ellsworth Kelly's final work 👏 #blantonmuseum #austinart #ellsworthkelly

"You don't set out to build a wall. You don't say 'I'm going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that's ever been built.' You don't start there. You say, 'I'm going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall." #WillSmith #Life #breakingstereotypes #UTSOA #Architecture
Ten stories of stone towers over visitors at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library, dedicated in 1971. The stone veneer selected by architect Gordon Bunshaft for the LBJ Library is travertine, a type of limestone formed near mineral springs, and it's our featured #materialoncampus
. You can tell travertine apart from other types of limestone by its porous texture, a result of escaping carbon dioxide molecules during its formation. Check out the LBJ library on the east side of campus; admission to the museum is free for students.

PaperFoam is a lightweight material made from industrial starch, cellulose fibers, pigment, and water, and it’s our #materialoftheweek
. This foam can take on a wide range of shapes through the injection molding process and is most often used for packaging, such as the pictured AiAiAi headphone packaging. In contrast to styrofoam packaging, PaperFoam can be composted or recycled after use.
We went to this artists house/studio and there was so much going on and honestly he’s living the life I want to have when I’m a grownup .

It’s Friday, so we’re doing all our favorite things in the lab—like listening to podcasts, organizing our collection, and watching the rain. 🎧 10/10 recommend the RM-3 (Raw Materials 3 Ways) podcast. Today’s listen was Episode 1: Zinc, featuring stories about chicken metal, galvanized pennies, and brass. Interviewees include Bill Zahner of Zahner Company, architect Marlon Blackwell, and Lanette Rizzo of the Allied Maker design studio. #matlabrecommends
