“Design Shine” Exhibition Opening
For the first-ever collaboration between the UMLAUF and the Austin Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture, three teams were chosen from proposals by emerging architects, designers, and landscape architects. Each installation in Design Shine engages light and the natural habitat of the UMLAUF Garden.
While each team brings something unique to their project, all are derived from close observation and interpretation of the UMLAUF grounds and history. You Are Here, designed by Ana Kurzan, Christian Klein, Mari Russ, and Irela Casanova, is an interactive sensory experience based on habitat. For Polaris, Sergey and Stephanie Belov and Scott Saddler will construct a series of familiar, everyday objects in a circular formation as a reflection on the Garden’s topography, water levels, binary code and cosmic alignment. The third installation, Lost Casts, created by Alexandra Krippner and Toni Toscano, draws influence from the history of fly fishing in the pond long before the site became the UMLAUF Garden.
