Pratt Institute’s Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design exhibition of student work has been curated, designed, and fabricated by a group of students in a course taught by Michael Szivos for the past 5 years. This year Michael along with Carrie McKnelly worked with a group of students to produce a large scale installation in the Hazel and Robert H. Siegel Gallery. The installation focuses the views of visitors along various axes through the gallery.

The visual work of the past years studio work is graphed on the walls based on semester and these various axes. Each axi connects 2 polar qualitative aspects of the work. For example, large-small, soft-hard, analog-digital, etc. Models are housed within the installation that frames the end of each axis. The installation was fabricated out of laser cut cardboard and thin plywood. The form was defined through 6 various polar extremes of the work. The surface of the installation was created with over 2400 custom panels and over 6000 custom clips.
