SHOW LTU 2023 highlights the work of the next generation of architects and designers through its commitment to LTU’s motto of “Theory and Practice.” The exhibition provides graduating students with a spotlight to showcase their work, grow professional networks, and mingle among noted industry practitioners. This marks the second year of the event being held on LTU’s campus, and the tradition will continue in the coming years.

In discussing a feature of the SHOW LTU exhibition, CoAD Dean Karl Daubmann presented the online gallery, a component of the exhibition that serves as an archive of the student projects and a digital extension of the exhibition. “I am excited to introduce and share our new online gallery . This is not only a short-term mode of translating the traditional gallery show to an online format but a perpetual outlet to celebrate and share the work of our students.”
