Sketches of Sea Island by UBC SALA Comprehensive Design Studio
Presented by the University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Sketches of Sea Island will be on display at the Architecture Center Gallery, opening on August 29, 2017. The exhibit will showcase work completed as part of the Comprehensive Design Studio at the School of Architecture in 2017. Works will focus on a single project for the duration of term to synthesize relationships between spatial ideas, program, material, and technical systems.
This year the studio focused on the design of a new mixed-use development at Sea Island in Richmond, which would play host to a new Harbour Air sea plane Terminal, restaurant, hotel and a other programmatic elements including a lap pool and event center. This exhibit does not yearn for a singular solution, nor will we display projects in isolation. Instead we celebrate and showcase the multitude of successful solutions to a single design brief. Sketches of Sea Island explores the collective creative consciousness that is a Comprehensive Design Studio.
