The Armstrong Ceiling Student Design Competition exhibition takes place in the Wentworth Institute of Technology's library. The exhibition displays five Interior Design student designs selected from the Competition. Students designed for a month in their senior-level studio taught by Professors Lynette Panarelli and Nancy Harrod. The goal of the competition was to think inventively and creatively about ceilings and all that they entail: grids, materials, lighting, sprinklers, diffusers, and speakers.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history. Countering the assumption that African arts and societies are largely unchanging and bound to traditions and customs, the remarkable diversity of objects and styles on display here tells a different story. The unique malleability and plasticity of clay, as well as its prominent use in global art contexts, make it ideal for exploring not only African art forms and aesthetics in particular, but also broader questions of design.

DURABLE is a design imperative to construct sustainable environments that promote not only long material life cycles, but also enduring cultural significance. It challenges those to consider the lifespan and the global and local impact of buildings by demonstrating how the design for durability can shape a sustainable future. The visual information and interactive displays offer experiences for people of all ages to engage with the cultural and environmental benefits of design that embraces the full material life cycle of architecture.
