The Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture continues to innovate and prepare students for the future with various events this fall semester.

History in Pen and Ink will open its exhibit on Aug. 28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Miami Beach Urban Studios, which is curated by Ricardo Lopez — a partner in Florez Lopez Architects who teaches design studios and Historic American Buildings Survey classes at the University of Miami.

The exhibit will present the works of students in HABS classes. HABS began in 1933, and was the first federal program to dedicate itself to preserving and transcribing the heritage of architecture in America.

History in Pen and Ink will have its reception on Aug. 31 from 7 pm. to 9 p.m. in the same room as the exhibit, which will open the floor for the discussion on the exhibit and its contents.

The “Master in Fine Arts Grad Lab & Exhibition” will begin on Sep. 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Miami Beach Urban Studios, and will serve as a space for first year students to show the work they created and demonstrate their influences which can range from books, artwork, music or even personal anecdotes.

On Sep. 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in PCA 341 on campus, there will be a presentation on ArchiCAD16, the most eco-friendly Building Information Modeling on the market today, which allows for easier manipulation of the objects, components, and structures required for BIM.

ArchiCAD 16 also allows users to search, upload and create new, original BIM components depending on their requirements and preferences.

A new design magazine, called eVolo, launched by Associate Professor Eric Goldemberg, author of “Pulsation in Architecture” and a founding partner of MONAD Studio, a research and design facility that makes use of new 3-D technology as well as digital and fabrication techniques for various scales of architecture, will present an exhibit displaying its contents on Sep. 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Miami Beach Urban Studios.

The exhibits will help to broaden, educate and help provide different perspectives on existing and developing technology. It will give some insight on the history and evolution of architecture as a whole.
