Architecture and landscape architecture Thesis Show displayed
Architecture and landscape architecture students are displaying their work at the annual Thesis Show on the second and fifth floor of Renaissance Hall until May 14. Finalists and winners of the Dennis Colliton Prize for landscape architecture and the Peter McKenzie Award for architecture will have their work displayed in the Renaissance Gallery in the first floor lobby from May 7 to 14.
The 55 architecture thesis projects and 19 landscape architecture projects represent the fifth-year class of 2011 and fulfill student requirements for the master of architecture or bachelor of landscape architecture degrees. Project types include housing needs in western North Dakota, a biometric digital library, a modern bio-dynamic farm, sustainable housing projects and transit facilities. The projects are the culmination of five years of academic training in the two professional programs.
Students spent their final academic year on their projects, which include display boards, models and digital animations.
