College of Architecture and the Built Environment Students Publish New Design Journal

A multidisciplinary team of students in the College of Architecture and the Built Environment produced a new publication, “SPACEWORK,” featuring student work from the 2013-14 academic year.

This is the inaugural issue of the student-initiated and -produced design journal.

“SPACEWORK” is available in the University Bookstore for $20.

Barbara Klinkhammer, executive dean of the College of Architecture and the Built Environment, said the publication “represents the outstanding work of our talented and dedicated students and would not have been possible without their perseverance and passion. ‘SPACEWORK’ is not only a collection and representation of student design work, but also an educational tool teaching students the value of critical reflection.”

The journal includes some of the year’s best student work in architecture and the built environment as well as interviews with faculty and industry professionals. “SPACEWORK” is available in the University Bookstore for $20.
