Students from the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture will be holding an open house tonight to showcase their work in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, City Planning and Environmental Design, as part of the FAUM Annual Student Exhibition Celebration.
A year’s worth of work will occupy two buildings and is an opportunity for the public to see what both undergraduate and graduate students have been working on.
The evening promises to be a visual extravaganza as students display their models, designs and prototypes. A film studio will also be part of the open house. Guests will also be able to enjoy two fashion shows by students who will showcase the designs they developed for a project on how to build an extension for the human body. Materials such as chicken wire, paper-mache and other materials were used to make fashions that are meant to house the body. First fashion show is at 8 p.m. and the second at 10 p.m.
The event begins at 7 p.m. in the John A. Russell Building and Architecture 2 Building, University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus. (see map)
