The latest art exhibition by COMSATS’ 2nd graduating batch of design aim to challenge existing norms and demonstrate the powerful role of architects in shaping the future of cities and solving urban problems.
The current graduating thesis batch of 2015 coincided with 10th anniversary of COMSATS Department of Architecture and Design.
The art display is a combination of the works of both the 6th graduating batch of architecture and the 2nd graduating batch of design, addressing issues ranging from the effects of urbanism on our society and experimental architecture, to design that questions the workings of the human mind and advancements of science.
Design and architecture students of COMSATS have experimented with diverse mediums and materials in their artwork that range from building designs to interiors to publications.
A total of 28 architecture projects have been displayed in which students worked on a variety building topologies and concerns; including schools, entertainment centers, health care and resorts.
The design projects, on the display, address the consumer on a more personal basis, with projects that range from illustration and animation to interior design. Breaking away from conventional ideas of design, the students aimed to create products that balance aesthetics and utility while addressing subjects of concern to today’s society.
