Architecture School at New Jersey Institute of Technology Displays Fine Student Work

NEWARK, March 6--An exhibit showing more than 300 pieces of graduate and undergraduate work produced at the New Jersey School of Architecture (NJSOA) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is on display through April 1. The exhibit was prepared for the New Jersey School of Architecture's five-year accreditation cycle.

"The student work represents the very best examples compiled over a five year period," says Urs Gauchat, dean of NJSOA. "The accreditation team was very impressed with the quality of the work as well as the professional presentation."

The exhibit includes a representation of computer assisted drawings (CAD), drawings by hand and models representing the use of all media.

Gauchat notes that people who are interested in hiring architecture students should utilize this opportunity to see which students are producing the best work.

Most of the models can be seen in the Weston Hall Gallery (second floor), located on the corner of Warren and Summit streets. The gallery is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Smaller displays of student work are scattered throughout the building and can be seen daily 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
