Current Exhibit: UBC SALA Presents “Conceptualizing the Technical”

AIBC Gallery

August  7 – September 19, 2014

This exhibit features 19 student team projects developed by fourth term Master of Archi­tecture students studying at the University of British Columbia. The studio work featured is the result of a collaboration between the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and the UBC First Nations House of Learning.

Each project on display explores the concept of “Research Centre” development in one of four institutional variants: centre, museum, archive, or memorial. Throughout the exhibit, the design process is illustrated through beautiful and provocative key images.  The exhibit also includes statements from individuals who participated in the studio as “clients”. This exhibit demonstrates how a real world context can lend meaning and clarity to help to speculative design endeavors.
