University of Texas at Arlington faculty members and students have been honored
for their architectural drawings in the 2013 Ken Roberts Delineation Competition,
which is considered the most senior architectural drawing competition in the
Roberts Delineation Competition, also known as KRob, drew more than 400 entries
this year. The annual competition is organized by the Dallas chapter of the
American Institute of Architects.
Gatzke, dean of the School of Architecture, said the honors signal widespread
recognition of excellence of the UT Arlington programs.
the almost 40 years of its existence, the KROB has risen to be one of a small
group of prestigious international drawing competitions and I believe that the
number of UTA faculty, students and alumni who receive prizes year after year
is a vivid indicator of the design and graphic culture of the School of
Architecture,” Gatzke said.

architecture, won awards for best in professional hand and physical submission
categories, respectively. John Maruszczak, also an associate professor of
architecture, was named a finalist in the professional digital/mixed category.

competition is named for Ken Roberts, a Dallas architect known in the 1960s and
early 1970s for his immaculate
ink perspective drawings of small residential and commercial projects. Roberts
created the first Dallas AIA delineation competition in 1973, but died suddenly
at age 34 the following year. The competition was renamed in his honor.
