At the conclusion of the Summer of 2014, the two groups of graduate students enrolled in ARC550 Regional Design Studio were asked to rethink the notion of a final presentation. As the semester’s project had been the design and development of an open-air museum for a collection of selected buildings, each student was challenged with creating an exhibition inspired by the ideas embodied within their own project. The installation had to express these conceptual ideas on its own and also was required to host a booklet containing a full architectural description of their project (the same content you would normally find on final presentation boards). The results ranged widely, from rather tame and more traditional creations to much more outgoing and abstract interpretations of the assignment. Below are some images from the exhibition of the work in the school’s gallery.
