Cabinet: Graduate Thesis Exhibit

May 18, 2018

A+D Museum, Downtown LA

Cabinet presents the collective work of emerging young designers from the 2018 graduate class at the USC School of Architecture. The title of the exhibition, Cabinet, is in direct reference to the Renaissance Era Cabinet of Curiosities, a cataloged collection of historical artifacts from around the world. For their thesis explorations, students were asked to reach into the cabinet of curiosities, so to speak, and engage with the historical precedents of our Architectural heritage. In doing so, students are able to contribute their own (future) precedents to the cabinet.


Exhibit runs through June 17, 2017. For more information, visit

Film Screening & Conversation: Face of a Nation

February 28, 2018

Gin D. Wong, FAIA Conference Center, Harris Hall 101



USC Architecture faculty Mina Chow will screen her feature documentary FACE OF A NATION: “What Happened to the World’s Fair?” Chow began FACE OF A NATION in 2010 after she visited the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the first World’s Fair in China and with over 73 million visitors. She found the U.S. pavilion to be an uninspired disappointment, and the film explores the U.S.’s declining participation in World’s Fairs over the last 25 years and questions the country’s role in the world and perceptions of America’s image.


A Q&A with the below panelists will follow the screening:

Professor Nicholas J. Cull, USC Annenberg Center on Public Diplomacy

Assoc. Professor Jay Wang, Director of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy

Beverly Payeff-Masey, Executive Director, The Masey Archives of US Exhibitions
