Design Library Hosts Architecture Event

On February 10, the Design Library hosted an exhibition and lecture by Dr. Robert L. Kelly on the work of architect Ernst Johnson who designed many of UK’s iconic buildings from 1935 – 1957.  Some of his buildings include the Old Engineering Quadrangle, Funkhouser, Erickson, Memorial Coliseum, Lafferty Hall, the Fine Arts building, the Student Union (now part of the Student Center), Holmes Hall and many others. Attendees at the lecture included Johnson’s business partner Byron Romanowitz and Johnson’s daughter Brenda Johnson Clay.  As they viewed the exhibit, guests enjoyed a reception sponsored by JRA Architects, the Lexington firm founded by Ernst Johnson.
