The 2×8 Committee organizes and produces the annual 2×8 Exhibition and Scholarship Competition. This event provides students from architecture and design schools throughout California with an opportunity to showcase their best work at a public venue and potentially receive scholarships to further their education as tomorrow’s architects. Two students from each school are selected by faculty to represent their institution and participate in the competition.


WHAT COMMITTEE MEMBERS DO

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.
