The exhibition includes a new installation by Gow entitled Semblances, incorporating translations between images and objects that produce a fusion between architectural form and forms that appear to be constructed natures. The project is focused on creating gaps in perception that challenge what can be construed, or misconstrued, to be either real or fictive.

Baumgartner and Uriu are exhibiting their project Apertures, which reflects on the current architectural discourse of digital ecologies, leading to a new type of interactive, organic building. The installation focuses on a symbiotic relationship between nature, building morphologies, and material expression, producing an estrangement of the architectural envelope in relation to the body of the viewer.

Also exhibiting in the 2015 C.O.L.A. Fellowship exhibition are Miyoshi Barosh, Kelly Barrie, Jeff Colson, Alexandra Grant, Harold Greene, Sherin Guirguis, Elizabeth Leister, Alan Nakagawa, and Barbara Strasen. The exhibition is curated by Scott Canty.
