Dean Judith DiMaio of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) School of Architecture and Design and Associate Professor and Exhibitions Curator Naomi Frangos, are pleased to announce: UNDERSTANDING PLACE, an exhibition featuring internationally renowned Philadelphia architecture firm KieranTimberlake’s Dhaka Design-Research within University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design Masters of Architecture program.

UNDERSTANDING PLACE showcases selections from a seven-year long rich investigation that capture the essence of Dhaka’s extreme wet-dry climate flux in a totally immersive atmospheric experience. Lit by an 8’ tall rear projection screen of audio-video captured footage, a narrated mind-map floor animation, an illuminated wall of colorful photographs, and LED monitor slide-shows of student projects, the visitor is invited to meander through four zones identifying the architectural design process: observation, data collection, analysis, and proposals.

This exhibition is open to the public and on display from March 1 through April 7 at NYIT School of Architecture and Design Center Gallery, Education Hall, Old Westbury campus, New York. Gallery hours: Mon-Fri, 9-5.

“If we look closely at the imagery, and pay attention to its content, we will notice, that beyond the wondrous colors that we see, the real Beauty resides in the power that humanity has, to shift the nature of its land in response to today’s world of immense environmental instability,” Naomi Frangos, Exhibitions gallery curator.

Exhibition Design and Curation: Naomi Frangos in collaboration with KieranTimberlake
