SALA Works

The University of British Columbia’s School of Architecture + Landscape Architecture invites you to SALA Works, an exhibition of faculty research, writing, and design that offers a provocative view into the current state of design thinking and practice at UBC. Curated by UBC Assistant Professor Matthew Soules MAIBC, the exhibition will feature a diverse range of projects that reveal the breadth and scope of faculty work in tackling critical 21st Century design topics. The projects presented, more than 20 in total, collectively incorporate various modes of drawings, computer-generated visualization, models and text, and span ideas for housing, public space transformations and community enhancement to the environmental performance of buildings and materials, written works on historical and contemporary space, and explorations of digital technology. This includes representations of built projects, speculative design propositions, emergent technologies, and socio-spatial analysis. SALA Works. The exhibition runs from February 25 to Marcy 15, 2012 at the Or Gallery, 555 Hamilton Street, Vancouver. An opening reception will be held on Monday, February 27, 2012 from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.  The Or Gallery is open from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. Admission is free.
