Opening reception for DMC’s Architecture Exhibit scheduled for Friday, March 4

‘Future of Architecture’ to be displayed at K Space Contemporary Art Museum

Article by: Rosa Linda Reynoso

Architecture is reflective of the time and culture of its creation. And Del Mar College’s (DMC) Architecture Program explores the future of built environment through exploration of innovation, symbolism and construction technology.

Highlighting the architecture theme, DMC’s “Future of Architecture,” a group exhibition of drawings, sketchbooks and models by first- and second-year architecture students, will be part of an opening reception on Friday, March 4, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at K Space Contemporary Art Museum, located at 623 N. Chaparral Street. The reception is free and open to the public.

DMC Assistant Professor of Architecture Bradford Eilering encourages creativity that frames our time and believes that architecture skills are best learned through making. Making should be reflective of critical thinking as well as applied development of hands-on craftsmanship and digital representation.

Eilering’s students also learn that architecture has the responsibility to connect with humankind in a capacity to inspire, motivate and even question the content of our existence.

Some of DMC students’ work in the exhibition include “Tectonic Plane & Frame” (wood, foam core) by Cerena Lopez, “Space Formed Through Structure,” (wood, paper) by Karina Collins and “Corpus Water Garden Reimagined,” (board, paper, foam core, wood) by Sarah Solice.

The exhibit will remain on display through March 25. The K Space Art Museum gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
