Moore Ruble Yudell helped sponsor the annual AIA exhibition 2x8. For the second year in a row, the show was held at the A+D Museum. Carissa Shrock, Associate, Ismar Enriquez, Toru Narita, and Clover Linne from Moore Ruble Yudell helped with the organization, installation, and sponsorship for the exhibition. Victoria Lam, Director of Graphic Design designed the exhibition graphics.
2X8 is an annual exhibition sponsored by the AIA|LA, showcasing exemplary student work from architecture and design institutions throughout California. Each of the participating academic programs select two projects that exemplify its core vision. The students’ design work is judged by a noteworthy panel of architects and designers who then announce the winners at the exhibition opening and convene in a forum to discuss the award-winning work. This year's jury was comprised of Annie Chu, AIA, David Montalba, AIA and Randall Stout, FAIA.
“This year marks 2X8’s 10th anniversary and we wanted to shake things up a little and involve not only the students, but also a great deal of the faculty,” said Ryan Gobuty, Assoc. AIA and the 2012 2X8 Committee Chair. “Last year we sent a request for proposals to all architecture and design schools statewide, received many submissions and after careful consideration and interviews, designated Matthew Gillis, a teacher at SCI-Arc, Woodbury and Otis, as the designer to create this year’s exhibition. We are very excited about his design as well as its visual and emotional impact.”
The jury commented that Gillis’ submission was an original concept that had the flexibility to fit in many different spaces. More importantly, the design supports—rather than takes away from— the student’s work.
