June Program: East End Bridge: Presentation and Tour
J. Harrods Restaurant & Bar, 7507 River Rd, Prospect, KY followed by Tour. Meet on Transylvania Beach where bridge passes overhead.
Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 5:30pm.
The bridges project has now been under construction of several years. The downtown bridge, now named the Lincoln Bridge is complete. The Kennedy Bridge is being redecked and Spaghetti Junction and the bridge approaches are being reconfigured. Everyone who works downtown has been watching its progress. Meanwhile in the east, the work on the east end bridge, its approaches, and the tunnel are also making significant progress, however this work is mostly out of sight.
Join us for a PowerPoint presentation of the bridges project followed by a tour of the east end bridge. Robert Morphonios, the CEO and Project Director for WVB East End Partners, LLC, representing a consortium of Public Private Partnership (P3) Developers consisting of Walsh, VINCI and BBGI will make the presentation. After dinner and the presentation, as a group, we will then drive over to Transylvania Beach to see the east end bridge up close. Depending on the level of construction activity at the time, we are hoping to be able to walk along the trestle leading to the bridge tower. If we are unable to access the site, Mr Morphonios will describe the work form the driveway of a residents immediately adjacent to the bridge crossing.
Assuming we are able to access the site, all visitors will be required to wear personal protection equipment ( Hard Hat, Class II Traffic Vest, ANSI rate safety glasses, and over the ankle construction boots....no exceptions). Please bring your own equipment. Mr. Morphonios will provide a quick safety briefing before going on site.
Free for AIA members, $20 for non-members.
More information will be posted as the programs are developed and confirmed.

West of Ninth Workshop and Charrette:
On August 25th and 26th Mitchell Kersting attended the West of Ninth Workshop - Charrette as a local stakeholder and a representative for the Central Kentucky Chapter of the AIA. The SDAT (Sustainable Design Assistance Team) event was led by the national AIA in support of local efforts and initiatives to "promote improved economic conditions in west Louisville".
The event had great participation and included a diverse blend of local stakeholders,City and State Officials and Committees. The goal of the event was to gather feedback from people with 'boots on the ground' to help AIA better understand the complexities associated with the so called "Ninth Street Divide". The event consisted of Presentations, Round Table Discussions, and breakout design charrettes. Weeks later AIA issued their initial Analysis which served as a representation of most of the ideas discussed. AIA indicated that they will be issuing a memorandum to City Officials and Stakeholder representatives with suggested further direction and "next steps" on ways to begin implementing these ideas.

The Central Kentucky Chapter is the oldest of AIA Kentucky’s chapters. Established on February 3,1908, it was the state’s only AIA chapter until 1952 when the Eastern Kentucky Chapter was organized. AIA Kentucky was formed in 1962 Known as the “CKC”, this chapter has always been headquartered in Louisville, with AIA members throughout the central, southern, and western regions of Kentucky.
Louisville architect Charles Clarke was selected to be the first president. He was also the first Kentucky architect to join the Western Society of Architects in 1882. But he died on March 9, 1908, and his partner, Arthur Loomis, fulfilled the remainder of the year as president. Loomis was a well-known architect who created many local landmarks: Speed Art Museum, Conrad-Caldwell House, Levy Building; St. Peter’s Church; St. Paul’s Church; etc.
To promote architecture in the city and state, the chapter presented an exhibition of architecture in 1912. This event involved all of the prominent Kentucky architects of the period. As a result, a book was published that catalogued all of the building projects that the various firms had produced. This book is still referenced today as a valuable historical resource.
James Murphy, who was president when this exhibit was held, was a very active member of the chapter. He was the brother to D. X. Murphy, whose firm created Churchill Downs, the old Jefferson County Jail, and other notable buildings. Their firm still operates today under the name of Luckett & Farley. James Murphy was a vocal advocate for better civic design and planning. His efforts eventually led to the state’s first planning commission in 1928, of which he became the first chairman.
The list of former presidents is a ‘who’s who’ of legendary architects within Louisville and Kentucky, a few of which are: Mason Maury; Brinton B. Davis; Herman Wischmeyer; C. Julian Oberwarth; Frederick Morgan; Frederick Louis; as well as several father and sons: Arnold Judd, (Sr. and Jr.) and Thomas Dade Luckett (II and III). Read more...
