2x8 is an annual exhibition sponsored by the AIA|LA, showcasing exemplary student work from architecture and design institutions throughout California. Each of the participating academic programs selects two projects that exemplify its core vision. The students' design work will be judged by a noteworthy panel of architects and designers, who will then announce the winners at the exhibition opening and convene in a forum to discuss the successful work.
2x8 Mission The AIA|LA Academic Outreach Committee, having established the AIA|LA AOC Scholarship Fund and awarded prizes and scholarships since the inception of 2x8 in 2002, is working aggressively this year to solidify a long-term endowment towards to recognizing and supporting future generations of emerging Architects. Winning students will take home scholarships in varying amounts. So far, 2x8 exhibitions have raised close to $100,000 in scholarship funds redistributed to California design students. Remaining donations are put toward an ever-growing endowment established for future student scholarships.
