FALL 2015 LECTURES
SCI-Arc’s annual Graduate Thesis Weekend & Graduation Ceremony will take place September 11-13, 2015 on the SCI-Arc campus in downtown Los Angeles.
A culmination of up to three years of study and coursework leading toward the Master of Architecture and M.Des.R post-graduate degrees, this three-day public event has students presenting their final projects to critics from all over the world, and culminates with an all-school commencement ceremony for both undergrads and grads. In addition to attending presentations and reviews, participants and guests can also tour the school and its facilities, including the newly opened Magic Box digital fabrication lab and cutting-edge Robot House.
SCI-Arc is pleased to present a commencement speech by outgoing SCI-Arc Director Eric Owen Moss, whose tenure at SCI-Arc concludes in the fall.
On Sunday, September 13, from 5-7 p.m., students, their families and guests are invited to participate in an all-school graduation ceremony, where degrees will be conferred to graduating students in the B.Arch, M.Arch and M.Des.R post-professional programs.
A reception will follow the ceremony, which will be held in the graduation pavilion designed and built by SCI-Arc faculty Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, with the help of a transformative grant from ArtPlace.
For those attending the event, on-site parking will be available at 350 Merrick Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013. Students, family members and friends unable to attend the ceremony can watch the live broadcast at sma.sciarc.edu/live.
Graduate thesis projects will remain on view throughout the school until September 18. In addition, a special Selected Thesis Exhibition showcasing outstanding projects selected by guest critics will be on view in the SCI-Arc Gallery between September 18-23, 2015.
