AIAS hosts exhibit featuring students’ work

By said Mascarinas. “”A lot of our focus is to outreach to those that are interested in our program and also because we deserve more recognition for how much work and effort out architecture students put into their work here.””

The exhibit is open to anyone

Cal Poly Pomona’s American Institute of Architecture Students hosted its quarterly exhibit of student work from winter 2016 on Wednesday, showcasing more than 120 exhibits to hundreds of attendees.

Professors from the architecture department chose more than 120 projects and landscapes from their classrooms to be presented at the exhibit. The projects included robotics, landscape designs, architectural concepts, drawing sets and construction projects, all presented by the students.

The projects presented are from landscape and architecture students of all years. Abigail Robles, a fourth-year architecture student, had one of her projects up on display. Robles believes the event is a social outreach in which students can learn from each other.

“Is just a great time to get together, and it is at the beginning of the quarter, so it is a great way to look back at what happened the previous quarter,” said Robles.

According to Robles, the work presented is a wide range, which allows students to catch a sense of everything that architecture deals with.

Most of the robotics presented are studies of how to develop interactive displays for installation within a building, which relates back to architecture and shows that architecture students are not only limited to just making buildings.

“What I like from this is that you get to learn from each other, and it’s a curated event where professors pick which projects they want to put on. So there is a level of challenge that you can learn from,” said Robles.

From her experience, Robles says this has been one of the most fulfilling events she’s been a part of.

“This has been a thoroughly rewarding struggle,” said Robles. “We’ve had to deal with so many obstacles and problems, but seeing it come together feels really good.”

According to Arielle Mascarinas, a fourth-year architecture student and the AIAS president, this exhibit allows for students to be recognized and show their potential to other classmates, teachers, incoming students and firms.

“It feels really nice because our students really deserve the recognition to get their hard work showcased, and it is only [during] this one time that we get to do it, and overall it is really rewarding to see it all come together and show everyone what CPP has to offer,” said Mascarinas. “It was very exciting, a lot of incoming students showed up, and it is a great night to see all of the work that was done and what to expect when they come into this career.”

According to Mascarinas, AIAS wants to showcase students’ work to be recognized and to target incoming students. “We have this event as a sense of pride and to show how proud we are of how our program is here and how much time and effort we put in

this showcase especially benefits students in lower level architecture courses.
