Exhibition and Competition that Fosters Tomorrow’s Architects  
Thursday, November 9 | 5:30PM - 8:30PM | The Bloc DTLA    
By popular request, we are thrilled to announce the return of 2x8, an AIA|LA program to foster next generation designers through exposure and scholarships.

If you joined us at a previous 2x8 exhibition opening night, you’ve experienced the excitement and the interest in talented students from higher education institutions throughout California. If you are new to 2x8, here’s some background information:

Why is 2x8 important to Los Angeles firms and what is it?
2x8 is a competition, exhibition, and scholarship fund for students at institutions of higher education throughout California.   
Each participating academic program selects two projects by student teams that exemplify the exhibition theme so that it can be considered by a noteworthy panel to judge.

Winners and scholarship recipients are announced at the exhibition opening.

Committee members such as Clay Holden, AIA, who is on the AIA|LA board this year, are re-launching this influential and essential program because of its value to the field.

As a firm interested in the next generation of designers, or as a former student yourself, if you would like to contribute to this scholarship fund, click here. And do let us know if we may recognize your firm or individual name, on a virtual “Donor’s Wall” and in program collateral. More info is below.
