Join us at the Wedge Gallery Friday, October 8th from 6 pm to 8:30 pm for Shade Shrines, an exhibition by Italian architectural designer and educator Angelica Lorenzi. Through a series of models and drawings, Shade Shrines tells the story of awnings as an overlooked element of the urban landscape. The exhibition will explore the form and materials of the awning and its role in protecting the façade from the sun’s rays, aiming to research the nature of the space created by the shade. Be sure to stop by! The Wedge Gallery is located at the north entry of the School of Architecture in the same building as the computer labs.
