Selected Thesis Projects: A Juried Exhibition of Exceptional Student Work

The SCI-Arc Gallery is pleased to share with the public a selection of exceptional thesis projects from the Fall 2004 thesis class. This short exhibition will allow the public to witness the outcome of the school's non-traditional pedagogy and methodology, rooted in experimentation. Final thesis reviews will take place all day on January 8th and 9th. After the presentations, the invited visiting jurors - who include Sheila Kennedy, Kennedy & Violich Architecture, Boston; Thom Mayne, Morphosis, Los Angeles; Joseph Rosa, San Francisco MOMA Curator of Architecture and Design; Andrew Zago, Zago Architecture, Detroit - will select projects for the SCI-Arc Gallery exhibit that tackle an interesting and unique problem and that show creativity in finding a viable solution to that problem.

An integrated two-term experience, the thesis program at SCI-Arc is designed to engage the interests and methods of working of each individual student. The first term is primarily dedicated to research, and to the development of a formal thesis proposal that rigorously lays the groundwork for the in-depth design study expected during the following term. The thesis term itself is dedicated to exploring responses to the inquiry posed by the thesis proposal. Graduate thesis reflects SCI-Arc's rigorous architectural education that is responsive to cultural change, promotes architectural experimentation and creative and academic freedom, and supports a fluid relationship between education and practice.
