PIN-UP EXHIBIT

All students interested in the Bachelor of Design in Architecture will be required to participate in a Pin-Up Review.

A team of faculty and industry professionals will rate each exhibit. While rating exhibits on the basis of overall quality rather than individual categories, they will look for examples of the following:

  • Design process: Development of ideas, as well as two- and three-dimensional diagramming skills.
  • Design resolution: Organizational skills in both two- and three-dimensions relating to spatial enclosure and circulation systems.
  • Communication skills: Drawing quality (free-hand and hardline); three-dimensional drawings (axonometric, one-point and two-point perspectives); use of hierarchy in organizing information; and model-building skills.

PIN-UP DETAILS

Applicants must present samples of their best architectural design studio work from the Design 1-4 courses. The exhibit must conform to the following specifications:

  • Fit exhibit on a 4ft x 7ft board (not provided by UCF). The board will be displayed vertically.
  • The upper 24 inches of the pin-up board must include only work from Design 1 and Design 2 (students may choose to use work from one or both of their first-year studios in this area). No work from Design 3 or 4 should appear in the upper 24 inches of your board. The remaining area of the board must include work from both Design 3 and Design 4. Other work may also be displayed in this section.
  • Affix all work to the board with T-pins or push pins only. No nails or adhesives.
  • Display models on the floor set-up directly in front of the board. They may be placed on concrete blocks, card board boxes or similar items. Photograph larger pieces of three-dimensional work and mount them with other two-dimensional work on the board. Students will be afforded 18 inches in front of their boards to display physical models.
  • Keep the focus on your work. An exhibit’s format should not distract from the work. Elaborate displays are discouraged and can be detrimental to exhibits.
  • Cover all personally identifiable information on any work, as all exhibits are to be anonymous.
