The 2×8:Exchange exhibit and B-Rolls sub-exhibit will be open and immediately adjacent for your exploration. This is a free event, though a $5 donation at the event toward supplies is appreciated.

Can’t draw? Not a problem, come!

Professional Artist? Great, come!

5 year old child? Great, come!

Senior Citizen? Great, come!

No idea what a floor plan is? Not a problem. Come!

Retired Architect? Great. Come!

Have fun and play at Your Design Day!

Your guide and coach during Your Design Day is Jenda Michl, a co-chair for 2×8:Exchange and the LA Studio lead at AB Design Studio. He began drawing houses and floor plans by age five, and has a passion for teaching and sharing the joys of creativity and architecture.

Your Design Day is part of an event series hosted by 2×8:Exchange, a month long pop up exhibit of student architecture projects from 13 different institutions from across CA which awarded $14k in scholarship prizes.

Check it out on Facebook.

The exhibit will be open during this event, and also includes multiple VR stations for the exploration of student creations with the latest technology. 2×8 is a production of the AIA|LA 2×8 Committee, presented by Shimahara Illustrations, and the exhibit space is generously provided by the Helms Bakery.
