    100 Years of Modernism

    Every Spring semester UNM SA+P's newest, 200-Level students are assigned to research, draw, and build a defining residential project of the Modernist movement. However, this year was unlike any other: with the incoming class of nearly 75 students (as opposed to the usual 45), when it came to pin-up day UNM SA+P's "Crit Bridge" was bursting with 100 Years of Modernist houses. In chronological order, digital boards lined the pin boards as far as the eye could see accompanied by painstakingly small, detailed models of each project. From UNStudio's Mobius House to the Case Study #20 project of the 1950's, students managed to capture the monumental period in a physical space no bigger than a classroom. The condensed nature of the exhibition provided a new perspective of the architectural phenomena. Being able to see a century's worth of architecture in its entirety almost allows one to fully grasp the gravity of the Modernist movement... almost.  

    Check out a few of the fantastic Modernist projects in the video our 200 Level Liaison, Nick Romero, put together!
