In 1963, as an undergraduate University of Illinois architecture student, James Warfield represented the newly formed Department of Anthropology in a Carnegie Foundation supported field studies program in Chiapas, Mexico. Living among the Maya villages of the indigenous communities, he developed an original set of architectural drawings and ethnographic field notes which became the basis for the chapter in Evon Z. Vogt’s milestone monograph Zinacantan: A Maya Community in the Highlands of Chiapas (Harvard Press: 1969).
Lecturer Tait Johnson recently presented a paper at the ACSA Fall Conference in Milwaukee entitled, "Regulation, Profit, and Power: The Transversal Relationships of Twentieth-Century Aluminum Cladding Production." This paper examined the mutual benefit, but also tension between competitors and collaborators, suggesting modern architecture is productively studied through the framework of such transversal relationships.
