The School of Architecture invites you to join us Friday 03 May at 6:00pm for the opening of the exhibition “Topographic Textures” curated by fifth-year B.Arch students Zain Islam-Hashmi and Gargi Lagvankar. The gallery exhibition will be hosted at the offices of GBBN Architects (5411 Penn Avenue) as part of the First Friday/Unblurred Gallery Crawl.

Funded through the SoA’s Burdett Assistantship, the exhibition reflects on the power of water to sculpt landscapes and the effect of the three rivers on the development of Pittsburgh over time. The exhibit documents the evolution of the river systems in relation to urban development as Pittsburgh evolves from a manufacturing hub into a knowledge city, and exposes the latent connections of hydrology, geology, and human geography through historical and architectural analysis. The reception is free of charge and open to all, and refreshments will be served.
