2×8 Student Exhibition, Competition, and Scholarship Program 2021

2×8 Student Competition, Exhibition and Scholarship program showcases exemplary student work from architecture & design institutions throughout California. Celebrating the state’s unequaled diversity in pedagogical directions, each of the participating academic programs select two student projects that epitomize their core vision. As many as 16 schools participate in the annual show.

Participating students exhibit their work at a public venue and have the opportunity to potentially receive scholarships to further their education as tomorrow’s architects.

We are in the organizational stages of 2×8 2021. Since you’re here, we invite you  to wander through a digital matrix of the 2020 virtual exhibition galleries at 2×8: Domum, the first year that the AIALA’s 2×8 Student Exhibition, Competition and Scholarship program went completely virtual.

As designed by Garet Ammerman, THR.D studio, Inc, and developed by Bryan Zhang, WbML at USC, the virtual exhibition space offers an untethered immersive gallery experience within a field of equally accessible student pods distributed by a graphic scaffolding.

Don’t forget to check back here for more info on 2×8: 2021 or sign up for the AIALA newsletter.
