Architecture at RISD Faculty Biennial

By Architecture Department | Mar 16, 2015

The RISD Faculty Biennial, a longstanding tradition, highlights new work by the extraordinary artists and designers who teach at RISD. The 183 works on view by 185 faculty artists are as varied as the many departments and divisions in which the faculty teach—ranging from apparel, textiles, painting, printmaking, ceramics, glass, sculpture, illustration, photography, jewelry, and metalsmithing to graphic design, industrial design, architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, film, animation, digital media, furniture, and more.

The following is a guide to the work by Architecture Department faculty in the exhibition, which will be up through March 22, 2015.
