09/20/19 USC Architecture Featured in A+D's Los Angeles Schools Exhibition


The A+D Museum in the Los Angeles Arts District will open its next exhibition, “Los Angeles Schools,” this Saturday, Sept. 21. The Los Angeles Schools positions Los Angeles as a center for architectural production, investigation, and research charged with producing tomorrow’s leaders in the world of architecture and design. The museum notes that while the group of architecture schools that exists in Los Angeles is incomparable, rarely do these geographically disparate and intellectually diverse institutions have the opportunity to come together to speak with a louder, more unified voice.

The USC School of Architecture’s contribution to the Los Angeles Schools exhibition includes large-format video displays that showcase a sampling of both undergraduate and graduate architecture student projects over the past two years. While large video monitors are now ubiquitous as teaching tools within design studios at USC, their critical and experiential impact within architectural space is rarely explored. This exhibition considers the formal and spatial impact of video monitors as architectural objects, and the exhibition has been curated specifically to situate the qualities of these objects within the “site” of the A+D Museum gallery.

The exhibition runs through Nov. 24, 2019. Other schools participating in the exhibition include Cal Poly LA Metro, Southern California Institute of Architecture, and UCLA Architecture and Urban Design. For more information, visit
