In its third year, SHOW LTU demonstrates how LTU’s College of Architecture and Design is preparing future architecture and design leaders through the university’s core philosophy of theory and practice.

Participants of SHOW LTU 2024 have completed either a master’s degree in Architecture, or a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, Game Design, Interior Design, Product/Industrial Design or Transportation Design. There will also be a selection of student work from junior-level courses. The event spotlights the perspectives of the next generation of professionals and places them among current industry practitioners.

For example, Emily Bigelow, who is completing her master’s degree in architecture, will show her thesis work (pictured), titled “Building Biodiversity: Architectural Interventions for Mangrove Restoration and Community Engagement” in the May exhibition. 

“Networking at this event can help students obtain niche job positions that are specific to their career ambitions,” Bigelow said.


Organizers include faculty, staff and students from LTU’s College of Architecture and Design. Lilian Crum (pictured), associate dean of LTU's College of Architecture and Design and associate professor and director of Graphic Design at LTU, is among them.
