Members of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association assisted architectural students and faculty from the University of Virginia in the creation of a site cast Tilt-Up Memorial to a student. The Memorial honors Eric Goodwin, a member of the class of 2002, who passed away during his final year of study at the School of Architecture.
Designed to provide outdoor classroom space, the Eric Goodwin Passage is located on a tight site in the Campbell Courtyard across from Campbell Hall – the building that houses the School of Architecture. Comprised of two site cast Tilt-Up panels, there is passage space between the two walls. The passage space is aligned with a tree memorializing Carlo Pelliccia, an admired professor at the school. One of the walls is vertical and the other is slightly tilted with braces. This project demonstrated the architectural expression that is afforded through the use of Tilt-Up, as well as served as an educational tool.
The project was made possible through donations made to the Eric Goodwin Memorial Fund, the Bruce Ford Brown Charitable Trust to support faculty and student design-build projects at Campbell Hall, and through the donations of Allied Concrete, Inc. and the Dayton Superior Educational Fund. Further, Dayton Superior donated the consumable products that they manufacture and lent the University their re-useable products for the project, as well as arranged for their local dealer to donate the reinforcing steel.
