2x8 is an annual exhibition & scholarship program showcasing exemplary student work from architecture & design institutions throughout California. Celebrating the state’s unequaled diversity in pedagogical directions, each of the participating academic programs select two projects that embody their core vision. As many as twenty schools participate in the annual show.

2x8 has been a springboard for designers to introduce themselves to LA and the world. In 2020, the visibility of the program is increased with the AIA national conference in Los Angeles. The opening night coincides with the conference, facilitating over 20,000 individuals attending Architects and AEC professionals to observe the student work. This raises the bar on the quality and execution of the exhibition, and will provide a greater platform for everyone involved.
