Food For Thought: O'Neil Ford and Mexico

Celebrate what connects us across time and borders as we explore the links between Trinity architect O'Neil Ford and Mexico. Whether in his passion for the San Antonio mission, his collaboration with Mexican architect Felix Candela, or his use of Mexican building techniques and materials. Ford had a deep and multi-faceted engagement with Mexico. Architectural historian and Trinity professor Kathryn O'Rourke will be joined by Ford's daughter, Wandita Turner, for a conversation about the ways Mexico shaped her father's work, and how he in turn shaped San Antonio. For more about your speaker, Trinity Professor Kathryn O'Rourke, Ph.D.


The Trinity University Food for Thought Series has offered enlightening lectures around a common table for more than 30 years. Each lecture features esteemed faculty and alumni experts, who have presented on topics from science and ecology to the arts and culture. As a service to University supporters and the greater Trinity community, this year's Food for Thought Series will resume in an in-person format with two enlightening events, focused on architecture and neurology. 

Tickets are $30 for each event and include: seated dinner, beer/wine, and presenter meet and greet.

Virtual options are also available.
