Please join the School of Architecture in celebrating the work of the students in the Summer 2019 Master of Architecture Graduate Thesis Design Studio, at the opening reception of the exhibition What is Contemporary?
The seven thesis projects presented explore salient ideas of the contemporary in the discipline of architecture. They cover topics such as redefining the relationship between reality and rendering, questioning the plausible degrees of non-synthesis between architectural representations, developing collective sentient apparatuses for experiencing electromagnetic spectrum, blurring boundaries between air and architecture through experiments with translucency, living in symbiosis with plastics, questioning the screen as building facade, and interrogating the familiar by manipulating the architectural background.
The 2019 Master of Architecture II Graduate Thesis Design Studio is taught by professors Michael Young and Anna Bokov.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 12-7pm
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
Located in the Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery, 7 East 7th Street, 2nd Floor, between Third and Fourth Avenues
