The Museum of Ventura County and the American Institute of Architects Ventura County (AIAVC) presents Design in the Marking, a community architectural exhibit exploring the dynamic role of architects and designers in affecting positive change in our community through the design thinking process.
Design in the Making runs through May 19, 2019 and will feature the Museum of Ventura County’s architectural archives, renderings and models opened to the public for the very first time, the 2017 AIAVC Design Award Winners, Women in Architecture and Ventura College Student work.
“Ventura County’s architectural diversity creates a landscape of historic relevance that defines the vernacular of our culture,” said Anna Bermudez, curator for the Museum. “The exhibit will present a cross-section of styles that reflect the influences of immigration and its cultural impact on housing and community buildings throughout the decades and throughout the county.”
Accompanying programs throughout the duration of the exhibit include a lecture and panel discussion, film screenings of ‘Face of a Nation’ and ‘The Thomas Fire Architect’, self-guided and docent lead walking tours throughout downtown Ventura, kids-draw architecture activities and a three-day AIAVC scholarship fundraiser to benefit high school students who intend to pursue careers in architecture.

Established in 1965, the AIAVC is a member-driven organization providing advocacy, leadership, and resources for architects.
