Exhibition of faculty work from the UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture

Curated by Matthew Soules, SALA Works at the Or Gallery in Vancouver presents a diverse range of projects by faculty at UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA).

As a dynamic centre of leading design research and pedagogy, SALA and its faculty stretch the theoretical, technical and practice-based boundaries of architecture and landscape architecture. SALA Works reveals the breadth and scope of faculty work in tackling critical 21st-century design topics. The more than 20 projects presented collectively incorporate various modes of drawings, computer generated visualization, models and text. The work includes representations of built projects, speculative design propositions, emergent technologies, and socio-spatial analysis. Spanning ideas for housing, public space transformations, community enhancement, written works on historical and contemporary space, explorations of digital technology and its role in the built-environment, the environmental performance of buildings and materials and more, SALA Works offers a provocative view into the current state of design thinking and practice at UBC.

The exhibition runs from February 25 to March 15, 2012, and the opening reception takes place on Monday, February 27, 2012 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. The Or Gallery is located at 555 Hamilton Street in Vancouver.
