Faculty, Alum Exhibit in SOUPERgreen at A+D Museum

Newly completed projects by faculty member Wes Jones and alumnus Steven Purvis (M.Arch2 '06) will be on view in the SOUPERgreen exhibition opening at the A+D Museum on Sunday, February 12.

SOUPERgreen features five architectural propositions that explore the way that technology—reviled by many as the source of the environmental problem and revered by others as its potential solution—can promote and enhance a far more constructive engagement between architecture and the environment.

Exhibiting alongside Jones and Purvis are Doug Jackson, Aryan Omar and Randolph Ruiz. The work produced by the five architects capitalizes on their collective expertise, as well as their proven unwillingness to play it safe. According to the exhibition release, "Their 'souped up' approach to green architecture is achieved by leveraging the expressive potential of a meaner, greener technology in order to produce architecture that is not only environmentally responsible by quantifiable measures, but which also critically and positively promotes more expressive, exuberant, rad, boss, and totally stoked green experiences."

SOUPERgreen will be on view through April 14. The A+D Museum is located at 6032 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036.
