An outside-in perspective is required to counteract the bias to inward focus. It is a deliberate activity and approach that aims to drag a business back into focusing on what is going on in this world. In this course, participants will understand the key elements of how biophilic designs can play a role in our work environment. The course will review the needs humans have in seeking connections to nature and other forms of life. The course will review the effects of urbanization and the tech takeover, while counterpointing companies’ willingness to include biophilic designs in the workplace. Finally, this course will review the reasons biophilic designs are dominating the workplace while showing examples of their uses in the hospitality setting.
Join us again in person this year at Helms Bakery District to view exemplary student projects from 19 unique architecture and design programs throughout California, to celebrate the diversity of architectural philosophy, and encourage conversation around our central theme of Community. 2×8 is an annual non-profit program that functions as a student exhibition and scholarship fund, and design competition. It was formed with the intention of introducing student work to the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry. In order to celebrate the academic diversity of within California, 2×8 invites a broad range of programs from across the state to participate and presents students an opportunity to receive scholarships at the opening reception and ceremony. The opening reception is free to attend and open to all.
This year, 2×8:Assemblies will present over $25,000 in scholarship awards through our annual scholarship program, raised from community members in the AEC industry. As in past years, a respected jury will evaluate the submitted student projects and award prizes based on merit. The final prize values will result directly from the total of our fundraising efforts.
Each year the exhibition is given a unique name and theme, and we encourage the schools to choose work that represents that theme. This year’s theme regards the dialogue surrounding Community in Los Angeles and other urban centers across the country in the face of Covid and all things socially distant. The name, 2×8:Assemblies, refers to a group or community of people, and also to the process of building where disparate parts become a whole. Students submit presentation materials and 3d models that respond to the theme with innovative solutions. The student projects are integrated into an immersive experience which will allow the public to experience the work in an exhibition format with augmented reality 3d model visualization. Participating schools are free to interpret the theme and name as they wish, and are encouraged to select projects that illustrate the strengths and goals of their program.
This will be an indoor-outdoor event. Proof of vaccination is required to enter.
We ask that all guests use the complimentary valet parking inside the interior parking garage located adjacent to the Helms Design Center, just west of the Danish Design Store showroom. The address for the parking garage is 8711 Washington Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232

How it works: Open to all students who have at least one project completed and/or a resume for review.
Students will go on a series of speed dates, each time being reviewed by a different mentor. They should be prepared to take control of the screen and present their work digitally. They have the option of presenting the same project or resume multiple times or presenting several different projects and a resume. Students will be put in a group of 2 or 3. Depending on the group size, they will be given 3-5 minutes to present one project, and the reviewer will have 2-3 minutes to critique.
