If Dr. Frankenstein worked with plants instead of bodies, he’d still have nothing on Temple University Ambler alumnus Brandon Huber. It’s no wonder that when his pride and joy — a 6-foot, 4-inch tall, 38-inch wide behemoth of a flowering plant — recently bloomed, it was welcomed by thousands of visitors to the greenhouse it currently calls home.
For Temple University and everyone who knew Dr. Jeffrey Featherstone, Saturday, May 7, was a day of unexpected and tragic loss. Featherstone, 68, passed away after a sudden and severe illness. While family, friends, colleagues and students mourn his profound loss, they are also remembering and celebrating a legacy built tirelessly over decades locally, nationally and internationally; in the classroom and out.
“After the Blast: Recollecting Roots and Resources at Hopewell Furnace,” presented by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, distills the preserved industrial landscape into a 33-foot by 23-foot exhibit that will take visitors on a journey through this once thriving, nearly self-sustainable 19th century rural “iron plantation.”
The Temple University Board of Trustees approved the transition of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture and the Department of Community and Regional Planning to the Tyler School of the Art where they join with the Department of Architecture and the Center for Sustainable Communities in forming the Division of Architecture and Environmental Design
