Principals of Axi:Ome llc featured in first exhibition.

St. Louis, MO, November 10, 2013 The Creative Exchange Lab /Center for Architecture and Design Saint Louis (CEL) will open the first exhibition in the new series “CONTEXT\CONTRAST: ST. LOUIS” at its Washington Avenue location on November 22, from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m.

The evening’s program will be a conversation featuring Heather Woofter and Sung Ho Kim, principals in the firm Axi:Ome llc, architects of the new University of Missouri – Saint Louis building in Grand Center that houses St. Louis Public Radio as well as media classrooms, labs and academic offices that opened in September of 2012. The conversation will center around their process and a discussion of the direction of the role of new architecture in this era of rapid change in the St. Louis built environment.

This exhibition is a continuation of the dialogue begun with “Context/Contrast : New Architecture in Historic Districts 1967-2009”, recently on view at CEL and developed by AIA New York and The Center for Architecture, that explored a selection of new commercial and residential projects and how they relate to the surrounding architecture and historically significant communities in which they are located.

“CONTEXT\CONTRAST: ST. LOUIS” will be on display through December 31, 2013, at Creative Exchange Lab/Center for Architecture and Design, 3307 Washington Avenue, St. Louis, MO.
