David De Celis MArch ’98

The upper-level architecture studio class at Boston Architectural College led by David De Celis MArch ’98, in collaboration with the Cambridge Arts Council (CAC), presents an exhibition that demonstrates possibilities for how architecture can make the arts more visible, more relevant, and more accessible within urban centers. In four stages, the exhibition will evolve over the course of three months. De Celis and his students will use Gallery 344, located on the 2nd floor of the City Hall Annex (344 Broadway) in Cambridge, MA, to show their process of exploring how strategic infusions of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design can transform a community. The exhibit runs March 16-May 29. For more information, visit the CAC’s website.
