Alternative Futures, an exhibition of visionary architectural designs by students at California College of the Arts (CCA), will be on display on the third floor of the San Francisco LGBT Community Center February 1–March 15, 2014.
In creating their designs, CCA Architecture students took their primary inspiration from 55 Laguna, an LGBT senior-housing project currently being developed in San Francisco. They were challenged to think about the specific history and needs of the LGBT senior community, and then asked to imagine new strategies for multi-unit housing in the city.
The exhibition is curated by Neal Schwartz AIA, associate professor of Architecture at CCA, as part of the ongoing Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts (QCCA) program.
The program is a collaborative effort of QCC and CCA aimed at uplifting the profile of the queer arts movement by bringing together locally and nationally renowned queer artists, writers, filmmakers, and scholars to discuss a broad range of LGBT topics in humanities and the arts.
