    Samara Weaver (BArch '11, MArch '13) Exhibits Naturalistic Artwork at Delaware's Mezzanine Gallery

    Author: Emily Herbein

    Samara Weaver (BArch ‘11, MArch ‘13) has always been drawn to buildings, spaces, and the emotions they can evoke. She ties her early love of architecture to a childhood memory of Philadelphia’s grand, neoclassical 30th Street Station.   When deciding on her education, Weaver chose to obtain both an undergraduate and graduate degree in architecture rather than the fine arts due to her search for a more “structured job market,” she recently told Art Watch Podcast.   Read More

    Tyler Ray (BS '22) Advocates for Preservation of Historic North Philly Church

    Author: Emily Herbein

    Lifelong North Philadelphia resident Tyler Ray (BS '22) is determined to use his Community Development degree and certificate in Historic Preservation to uphold one of his neighborhood's most beloved structures, the Church of the Advocate. Ray tells Temple Now that his family have been lifelong members and the church is what initially "nurtured his love of architecture and passion for preservation."  Located at 18th and Diamond Streets, the Church of the Advocate was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1980. It's a prominent example of French Gothic Revival architecture, and one of the most notable examples in the United States. Ray recalls how the structure has been in disrepair for as long as he can remember, which he attributes to inequity between predominately white and Black neighborhoods. That reality pushed him to attend Temple and encouraged him to solve problems that hit close to home. Read More
