Architectronica

After its rebranding in 2011, the yearly “media party” hosted by Architecture Students at Rice (ASR) has become a unifying event that brings together engineers, musicians, scientists, writers, artists, and planners to celebrate interdisciplinarity, show off their work, test new concepts, demonstrate their creativity, and have fun.

The works are created and curated by students, and serve both to entertain and inform. The featured reoccurring installation animates the distinctly barren interior of the architecture school with student-made media (data visualizations, maps, computer simulations, poems, renderings, drawings, documentary videos, high speed footage, etc) via a multi-channel video projection system that synchronizes the content to live student-created music.
