UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.— "Daily Drawings: Accumulation of Memory and Form," an exhibition of drawings by Cathy Braasch, assistant professor of architecture in the Stuckeman School and founding principal of Braasch Architecture, will be on display in the Borland Project Space (125 Borland), Jan. 17–Feb. 16, as part of a residency project.

Braasch’s residency will explore duration in architectural space – the influence of memory and the potential to design for change – through a series of iterative drawings. The drawings will be progressively displayed along with previously completed works and in concert with discussions about the role of memory and time in the design of the built environment.

“The images created will carry forward traces of the past in erasures, overdrawing, errors, and eccentric spatial conditions,” explained Braasch. “These arise out of this negotiation between accident and intention, much like designing with existing site conditions or witnessing the gradual evolution of a city.”

The following events will be held in the Borland Project Space in conjunction with the exhibition:

Wednesday, January 25, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Mono Print Workshop

Wednesday, February 1, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Roundtable on Memory & Architecture

Tuesday, February 7, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. Roundtable on Daily Drawing Practices & Closing Reception

Wednesday, February 15, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Lecture by Cathy Braasch on Axonometric Space
