 ‘VERT’, the 2007 2×8 Student Exhibit was held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

Here are the details of the exhibition’s design.
VERT=
GREEN=The exhibition design is sustainable. Displays are made entirely out of 80% recycled content cardboard tubes. The fluorescent back-lighting with eco-friendly lamps use little power and will be re-used in future exhibitions

VERTicality: Display towers fill the space, identifying each school from one direction, and showcasing the student work from the other.

VERTebrae: Clustered towers resembling vertebrae are oriented along a spine that meanders through the cloumns of the existing lobby.
