Art Omi: Architecture Residency, Final Reviews

Saturday, Mar 9
10 AM – 5 PM
Benenson Center

These final presentations led by an architecture critic give the 10 participants of the Art Omi: Architecture Residency an opportunity to pin-up and show their projects at the conclusion of the two-week residency. Click here to learn more about the 2019 architects-in-residence.

The public is welcome to see the early stages of the thinking and design process of making architecture in a classic jury-style review.

The reviews are arranged into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with a lunch break in between (where the public can grab a bite at the Café!).

Following all the juried presentations, everyone is invited to enjoy a reception with conversation, snacks and refreshments, and get to know the 2019 Architecture Residents.

Free and open to the public.
