Tennessee Tenure -

Five Years into a Teaching Commitment


After eight years in Tennessee, this month Hansjörg Göritz celebrates the fifth anniversary of a unique honor of delivering the 2010 lecture Stone Works in the Robert B Church III Memorial Lecture Series at the University of Tennessee. In conjunction with the exhibit Stones and Sketches it then marked 25 years of selected works and the candidacy for tenure and promotion as full professor at the College of Architecture and Design. A grand concluding moment was the late Bruce McCarty asking 'why of all places Tennessee?', and Hansjörg responded to the admired colleague that at a certain point an authenticity of places and people are a most important syncretistism in life and across cultures.
