Woodbury students Armen Janazyan and Ka Kit Chiu have won an Honorable Mention in the 2×8 Exhibit Design Competition, a student awards program by the AIA Los Angeles chapter. 2×8 is a competition, exhibition, and scholarship fund for architecture students at institutions of higher education throughout California. Academic institutions select two projects by student teams, which is then considered by a jury of architects and designers.
Their proposal, Between the Lines, was designed to be the MoMA PS2. Aiming at housing a permanent architecture collection in Los Angeles, the project focuses on architectural education. Intuitively allowing people to discover what it means to be an architect, the design explores the idea that “Architecture lives within drawings”, where architectural space is ultimately oriented around two-dimensional drawings. If one reads between the lines, there is an architecture.
Armen Janazyan and Ka Kit Chiu’s submission is displayed with the other 2×8 winners at Helms Bakery in Culver City.
