• About OPEN

    OPEN is a dyptical exhibition in which the gallery space is devoted to use by the architecture students of Syracuse University and the materials are primarily viewed on this website, which was created for the exhibition.

    For this exhibit we wanted to show our process, including our intentions, and show especially the myriad linkages and connections to the kinds of background information that lead us to certain decisions – research of the cultures of a place, its politics, and economics, all of which we thoroughly investigate to inform our design strategies.
