These projects reflect the research, exploration, and presentation of specific infrastructure projects completed by students in AP-2D Design and Photo Digital Design II. In collaboration with and reflecting the work of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, the projects provide a new way for students to understand their built environment. Each exhibit was presented at either the Center for Land Use Interpretation’s mobile exhibition unit or in the Heritage Room exhibit space at Albuquerque Academy.
