Spring Show 2013

From May 21st – June 3rd, the Palace of Fine Arts designed for the 1915 Pan Pacific Exposition by world class Architect, Bernard Maybeck, was home to thousands of jaw dropping pieces of student work from every School within the Academy of Art University. Leading industry professionals, students, parents, and general public were amazed by the high level of creativity and professionalism that was evident in all of the work.

Like all other schools of art and design, the School of Landscape Architecture was assigned a space within the building, and in addition to setting up our student exhibit, we were given the exciting charge to create a “reflection garden” that would beckon visitors to walk in, take a seat, and reflect upon all of the visually and mentally captivating material they had encountered.

It was decided that the space would become home to 30 Betula alba ‘Dura Heat’, Dura Heat Birch, placed in a grid of red boxes that marked the entrance to the space with gusto, and directed visitors into three distinctly different spaces that showcased the best of our department’s student work.

If you didn’t get a chance to visit Spring Show 2013 in person, check out the photos below and take it all in. Special thanks to Scott Elder, Pam Nagle, Owen Lang, and Daniel Correia for taking time out of their busy schedules to help us put together this memorable exhibit.
