Marlon Blackwell's Shelby Farms Park Project Short-Listed for 2018 World Architecture Festival

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A project designed by Marlon Blackwell Architects has been chosen for final consideration in the 2018 World Architecture Festival Awards, the world's largest architecture design awards program serving the global community.
More than 530 projects from 57 countries were short-listed in 35 award categories for the festival, to be held Nov. 28-30 in Amsterdam. Large and small firms will compete as equals this week when presenting their designs to international judging panels and festival delegates.
The Blackwell project, The Buildings in the Heart of the Park at Shelby Farms Park in Memphis, Tennessee, is one of 16 short-listed projects in the Completed Buildings–Civic and Community category. It is the only U.S. project among the finalists in this competition category.

Blackwell is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. He is the E. Fay Jones Chair in Architecture and a Distinguished Professor in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas. His professional firm is based in Fayetteville.
The Blackwell buildings are part of a master plan developed by James Corner Field Operations to revitalize Shelby Farms, a 4,500-acre area that has functioned as a penal farm, a recreational area and, now, a nonprofit park. Corner is the landscape architect who designed the High Line in Manhattan. The master plan for Shelby Farms Park focused on reimaging about 200 acres as "the heart of the park," creating an ensemble of buildings and structures around the 80-acre Hyde Lake.
Marlon Blackwell Architects developed a unified architectural vision for the buildings, knitting the projects together across the broad park landscape with a shared material palette. A skin of aluminum bar grate gently filters sunlight, while second-growth cypress and zinc-colored metal panels complete the clean look.

The plainspoken design reflects the open prairie and the industrial agricultural ethos of the site's past. "These figures in the landscape share DNA with silos and barns and processing sheds," Blackwell said. "They're an interpretation of those buildings and an abstraction."
The buildings include a visitor center, a restaurant and event center, a stage pavilion, picnic pavilions and a boathouse.
The buildings' porches, a uniting feature among the structures, are designed to provide shade and rest in the open landscape. The 8,000-square-foot visitor center has another 8,000 square feet of porch, with giant fans turning overhead. The restaurant and event center has an 80-foot-deep porch, providing ample seating from which to watch the sun set over the lake. The buildings are lit from within at night, glowing like lanterns in the dark.

The project was featured in the August 2018 edition of Architectural Record and will be included in an upcoming book by Susan Schadt Press.
Blackwell has had five other projects shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival awards in previous years. One of them, the St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church in Springdale, was named the World's Best Civic and Community Building in 2011.

Savitribai Phule Type of Pune University
Rasika Muliya, Mumbai
Although research has been given to the professors to go beyond the pay hike and take interest in the research, then such research has been reiterated that there has been a significant increase in the lethality of literature. About 600 professors of Savitribai Phule University of Pune were abducted in the search. The University has sent notices to them.
Professors are interested in research in research and research from universities, such as those that are critical of the speeches in educational institutions. Millions of rupees are given to the University Grants Commission's scheme, plans of the center's science-technology department and the funding of the university to encourage the researchers to research. There is about of professors appearing in all the universities. Instead of being properly appropriated to the fund, it is clear that the professor is abducting somebody's research material by taking away the excursion.
Savitribai Phule, which is considered among the best universities in the country, found lectures in the research department of 600 professors of the University of Pune. When the research paper was examined, more than 40 percent of the material was found. These research papers are in the last three years. There is a question as to what is the result of funding for research by a representative of Pune University.
University action
The university's 'IQC' has started research on funding for research, research done through it. From this, the literature of research was highlighted. The university has started the process of taking action against these professors and sent them notices. The sources said that they are considering taking steps to take their stand and send them back to the research and take action against them.
Misconduct in other universities?
All universities receive funding for research by a large number of commissions. He is also offered to the professors. However, the quality of the research is not examined. After this inspection by the University of Pune, the malpractices were exposed. But in other universities, such a prevalence becomes very common, a former vice-chancellor said.
While examining the professors' research papers, the text has been sent to the professors found in the text. They will be scrutinized by the notice and decided to take strict action. Savitribai Phule is doing well in Pune University research. We are trying to prevent any untoward incident.
