The team was selected through a competition process and juried by the AIA|LA’s Academic Outreach Committee. Designers were asked to propose solutions for an outdoor display of up to 32 different design projects on a pedestrian street in the Helms Bakery District.

The winning entry is titled INTERLACED, the theme of 2x8 this year.

INTERLACED utilizes novel fabrication techniques on readily available PVC pipes to form three types of spatial displays for the 2x8 exhibit: the triangle, the pentagon, and the heptagon. Each INTERLACED module also contains interwoven tension cables through the structure to allow for a suspended display of the exhibition work. 

About 2x8, the event the solution is for: 2x8 is a unique annual exhibition & scholarship program showcasing exemplary student work from architecture & design institutions throughout California. As many as 16 schools participate in the annual show.
