LA 482’s Temporary Art Installation – HLA Happenings

LA 482’s Temporary Art Installation

The students in LA 482 class (instructed by Assistant Professor Yiwei Huang) created a series of temporary art installations on Agricultural Mall Thursday afternoon (April 28). The designs include a road chalk painting, an interactive watercolor-seed exchange station, and a labyrinth that is meant to be walked through to find inner peace for anyone who passes by. The installation is part of experiential learning for the concept of “Placemaking and Tactical Urbanism” in the Contemporary Issues in Landscape Architecture class, a strategy in urban design and landscape architecture that brings to life spaces that are underutilized, and uses temporary installations to cultivate community spirit, and inspires permanent changes. Professor Shannon McMullen from Art and Design was invited as the guest instructor and worked with Dr. Huang to guide this art activity.
