EX-CHANGE is a publication and year-end exhibition celebrating the work of the Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture from 1st year to PhD. Inaugurated in 2017, EX-CHANGE represents an ongoing opportunity to shine new light on the SoA’s programs and to position the work within larger questions of research and practice.



The School of Architecture 2019 EX-CHANGE year-end show celebrated the work of the SoA from 1st year to PhD from May 6-7, 2019. 

Stay tuned for the newest edition of the EX-CHANGE publication set for release in September 2019.


This booklet is a compendium of thought, work, and discussion generated by EX-CHANGE. It includes student work from the studios, research labs, and centers alongside excerpts from the moderated conversation between students and critics based on questions generated by studios.

Every semester, the SoA studios generate rich provocations, collaborations, and opportunities for both orchestrated and spontaneous exchange. Beyond definitive answers, the projects and research of our studios grapple with an array of critical questions. These questions drove the inaugural end-of-semester exhibition and discussion with SoA faculty, students, and invited guests Aaron Betsky and Trey Trahan.
