MANHATTAN -- Scottish architect Alan Dunlop is the 2009-2010 Regnier Visiting Chair in the department of architecture at Kansas State University.

As part of his residence with K-State's College of Architecture, Planning and Design, Dunlop will present the public lecture "Working Drawing" at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, in the Little Theater at the K-State Student Union.

Dunlop will concentrate his teaching time at K-State in graduate-level architectural design studios, working primarily with the studio of architecture professor Susanne Siepl-Coates. This semester her studio is designing a residential facility, based in Glasgow, Scotland, to serve multiple-sensory impaired young adults in making a transition from living with their families to a more independent way of life.

Dunlop is a partner in Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects based in Glasgow. The firm's recent award-winning design of the Hazelwood School in Glasgow for children who are deaf and blind has been widely published, including in the Architectural Record and can be viewed at:

Dunlop also is a Fellow of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland and was educated in London and at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow. He is currently a visiting professor at Robert Gordon University's Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen. He has taught in multiple schools of architecture in England and Scotland and has lectured internationally. He also delivered K-State's Oscar Ekdahl Memorial Lecture in April 2009.

Known as a gifted draftsman, Dunlop's drawings have been exhibited at the Royal Academy in London and at the Royal Scottish Academy. His drawings were awarded the Royal Gold Medal in Architecture in 2008 from the Royal Scottish Academy. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, the Lighthouse in Glasgow, in Europe and at the Venice Biennale.

The Victor L. Regnier Visiting Faculty Chair in architecture at was established by the children of Victor and Helen Regnier to enrich the educational experience of K-State architecture students by exposing them to the finest architects from around the world.
