2x8 / Academic Outreach Committee

The 2x8 Committee organizes and produces the annual 2x8 Exhibition and Scholarship Competition. This event provides students from 12 architecture and design schools with an opportunity to showcase their best work at a public venue and potentially receive scholarships to further their education as tomorrow’s architects. The two students from each school are selected by faculty to represent the program.

In 2012, the 12 participating schools included: Art Center College of Design; California College of the Arts; California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; California State University, Long Beach; East Los Angeles College Department of Architecture; Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design; Otis College of Art; Southern California Institute of Architecture; Pasadena City College Architecture Department; UCLA Architecture and Urban Design; USC School of Architecture; and Woodbury School of Architecture.  

The group of young professionals that comprise this committee meet regularly from January through May to strategize the year’s exhibition, conceive the theme for the competition, logo and all graphic materials, coordinate communications with the schools and students, collect the students’ work, conceptualize and implement the exhibition, fund raise for the scholarships, contact a jury of professionals to evaluate the exhibited students’ work and award the scholarships and organize the exhibit opening reception.
