Final Show - Space Design
Restructuring an Existing Event...
The goal of this project was to reformat the design program’s space for its final show. I hoped to create a layout that gave structure to the flow of the event, and more successfully showcased student work - both individually and by class.
Below is the previous layout for the Spring Design Show. There were two primary pain points after using this format. First - student work from various grades was intermixed, so it was difficult to see the progression of the student body from sophomore to junior to senior year. Second - because attendees had no designated guide through the event, many students on the “outskirts” of the space weren’t being seen.
The new layout for the event guides attendees on a path from sophomore, to junior, to senior work. This allows the viewer to see a progression of work through the years of the program. Because there is only one path through the show, with internally facing panels, every individual’s work will be seen.
