Degrees of Design is the Center for Architecture’s annual exhibition featuring student work from Philadelphia’s five Architecture and Design schools. The participating schools each choose a selection of student work from various design departments within their institutions, from architecture and interior design to urban planning and landscape architecture. The work on display represents the diversity of pedagogical philosophies and teaching techniques among the schools.
An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at CFA on Thursday, Feb. 6 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event includes a panel discussion will explore “what skills and attributes firms look for when hiring young architects and designers” and will feature representatives from design firms of various sizes, as well as young architects.
