Conceptualizing the Technical exhibition at the AIBC Gallery

Running from August 6-September 19, 2014, this exhibition at the AIBC Gallery 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 and memorial. Throughout the exhibit, the design process is illustrated through beautiful and provocative key images. The exhibition also includes statements from individuals who participated in the studio as “clients.”

Conceptualizing the Technical demonstrates how a real-world context can lend meaning and clarity to help to speculative design endeavours.

A reception will be held on September 15, 2014 from 5:30pm to7:30pm. Advance reception RSVP is required prior to September 5, 2014 by e-mailing The AIBC Gallery, located at #100 – 440 Cambie Street in Vancouver, is free and open to the public from Monday to Thursday from 8:30am to 5:00pm and Friday from 8:30am to 1:00pm.
