At the end of each academic year, SCI-Arc’s Spring Show is presented to the public and surrounding community to showcase exceptional Undergraduate, Graduate and Postgraduate studio projects, along with seminar work in the Visual Studies and Applied Studies curriculum. As curators and organizers of this year’s show, the aim was to capture the specific dynamism of this year’s work defined by a matured facility and skillfulness to produce comprehensive design projects, wholly integrated with imaginative ideas on materialism and representation.
This year an emphasis was placed on forefronting student work which engaged disciplinary agendas to complete architectural projects, including program, massing, and tectonic resolution. As in past years, the Spring Show installation starts where the Undergraduate Thesis presentations conclude. This year’s show expanded the exhibition area dedicated to strong thesis work beyond Keck hall, into the North Gallery due to the impressive resolution achieved by many of our Undergraduate students in the final year of their degree. The North Gallery model podiums were further modified to allow for the increased exhibition of the highly executed models produced in the thesis and 3B comprehensive studio in the Undergraduate Program, with neutral tones serving as a backdrop to the highly articulated materiality of this year’s models.
