YEARLY EVENTS:

The Art & Architecture Festival

Architecture students and instructors from various universities gathered on the original site and constructed interactive art installations. For some, it’s the first time they picked up a power tool. For all, it is a unique opportunity to work together, share in the learning, and see projects through from design to completion.
