The Department of Architecture holds an End-of-Year Show (EOYS) at the end of each spring term. The EOYS honors students and faculty for their high achievements and showcases the innovative, creative, and scholarly work generated during the academic year. The EOYS consists of three components — the Curated Student Work, the Celebration of Excellence, and the Fresh Vision Exhibition in the Wright Gallery.
Curated Student Work
The Curated Student Work presents a collection of creative and scholarly student work across all undergraduate and graduate curricula. The virtual and physical exhibition located on the fourth floor of Langford A and COA North in downtown Bryan includes drawings, representations, physical models, photographs of models, renderings, animations/GIFS, AR/VR/AI videos, and innovative multimedia platforms. The Department of Architecture faculty selects awards for each representation type.
Celebration of Excellence
The Celebration of Excellence is a formal presentation of the top five Master of Architecture final study projects. A select jury from outside the university reviews, critiques, identifies and awards the best final study project.
Celebration of Excellence Student Work
Fresh Vision Exhibition
The Fresh Vision exhibition is a college-wide Best of Year Show with spaces dedicated to the creative and scholarly work in the built environment developed in all four departments. A college-wide curatorial committee selects work from the Curated Student Work and Celebration of Excellence and showcases it in the Wright Gallery along with examples from each of the respective fields. A selected external jury vets the selected work and awards top college-level prizes.
