Design Studio Students’ Work in Brutal DC Exhibit

So proud of our fourth-year studio students, and especially the groups that produced work now on display at the Southern Utah Museum of Art. Over the spring semester, our studio studied the adaptive reuse of the Lauinger Library in Washington DC on the Georgetown University campus.

Four student design projects from last year’s spring fourth year studio were included in a new design exhibition at the Southern Utah Museum of Art titled: Brutal DC.

The exhibit reimagines new uses for DC’s aging brutalist buildings and includes work from Diller Scofidio and Renfro, Brooks and Scarpa, Gensler, and others. Many thanks to the organizers / curators / museum staff, including Angela Person, Ty Cole, Deane Madsen, and Jessica Kinsey.

The exhibition was featured in a nice article by the Architects Newspaper:
