Design Shine


The UMLAUF and AIA Austin are proud to collaborate on their first annual exhibition in the garden: Design Shine. Created to showcase emerging talent in the fields of architecture and design, the juried competition yielded three extraordinary installations from three local teams, each of which invokes the history and topography of the UMLAUF site.  Situated amidst Charles Umlauf's sculptures, Design Shine reinvigorates the visitor's experience with captivating, family-friendly sculptural art works. ​
