THE 2022 HOLIDAY TRAIN EXHIBIT

THE CENTER FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN IS ONCE AGAIN PLEASED TO CARRY FORTH A LAZARUS HOLIDAY TRADITION WITH A CITYSCAPE-INSPIRED HOLIDAY TRAIN WINDOW DISPLAY.

Please plan to join us at The Center for Architecture and Design for an opening reception to celebrate the unveiling on Friday, December 2, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The Lazarus department store holiday window displays were extravagant winter worlds in miniature, featuring trains, toys, and other festive decorations created for the flagship store here at Town and High Streets. Inspired by that tradition, the Center for Architecture and Design again presents a contemporary take on the holiday train display.

The well-crafted model is a powerful and evocative tool unique to the design professions. This year we invite architects, landscape architects, designers, students, and community members to show off their model-making chops and visionary thinking as we collectively contemplate possibilities for the skyline of Columbus with a … Public Transportation Hub & Accessibility of The Future.

Participating teams will purchase a 12″x18″ plot along the train line – upon which to mount their concept (a model) for a high-rise “hub” that establishes a much-needed infrastructure for the future of transportation in Columbus.

The transportation hub utilizes connections between the car, bike, train, bus, and pedestrian to help the community support and understand that access to quality public transportation equals freedom, equity, and inclusivity for all who call Central Ohio home and desire to visit and explore the city of Columbus. Models will be constructed with all white Legos™ (clear for glass is acceptable) – no shorter than 24″ and no taller than 48″.
