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.
2×8:Exchange, the 13th iteration of the AIA|LA’s celebrated annual 2×8 student exhibit and scholarship fundraiser, adds VR immersion, a zero waste plan, and an engaging event series to the one-of-a-kind pop up gallery that 2×8 is known for.
