This week is the opening of AIA|DC's 2017 Awards Show, an exhibition showcasing this year's winners across three categories: Unbuilt Washington, Washingtonian Residential Design, and Chapter Design Awards.

Wood Cloud is an installation at Gallaudet University, the world's only university with programs and services specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students, in the central four-storied atrium of the Ballard North Residence Hall.  

Wood Cloud comprises a randomized grid of wooden boxes mounted to an armature of wood framing. Each box is unique relative to location, height, and sectional installation. Most are hollow and of natural finish, but some boxes floating within the field glow white, illuminated with LEDs and faced with translucent lenses. Wood Cloud maintains and supplements the vertical transit of air and light, preserving the spatial and atmospheric qualities of the atrium while establishing visual separation between each adjacent residential zone.

The exhibition runs from Monday, December 11 through Friday, January 26 at the District Architecture Center. You can also vote for the People's Choice Award.
