UCLA A.UD students were selected by a faculty committee to exhibit their work for the annual Dean's Donor Reception on April 12, 2012.

Anna Meloyan's Venice Public Bath for undergraduate course AUD 121 / Studio One. Instructors: Steven Christensen, Tim Callan (TA),  Ian Thomas (TA).

Adam Rude's project for the graduate course 414 Comprehensive Urban Building Design Studio led by Mack Mack, Roger Sherman, and Ben Refuerzo attempts to address the issue through a radial configuration of transparent program elements, revealing all that is happening within the school at a given moment, as well as through a physically engaging topographic environment which will make the experience of attending the school exciting and memorable.

A shell structure is conceived as a continuation of the central landscaped hill, folding over itself and forming a large pavilion.  This provides an image to the city, and a haven to the student body.  Underneath the shell, the program is compartmentalized into bulbous pods, allowing rain-sheltered circulation to happen around them.  Each of these pods also extends itself programmatically into the plaza, claiming a piece of the landscape as its own and reshaping it as necessary.  Above each pod is a perforation of the shell¹s concrete panel structure, providing optimal daylighting to the occupied spaces.

Jacob Semler's work was created in the graduate course Advanced Topics Studio led by Visiting Professor Wonne Ickx.
