Work by Jacob Brillhart (A ‘99) is featured in “Flat Land: Four Architects Drawing Miami,” an art exhibit considering Miami’s struggle to accommodate growth, conflicting interests and natural threats in an area surrounded by water. The series is presented by Miami-Dade Public Library as part of an artist-in-residence program.

The four architects and artists, Brillhart, Rocco Ceo, Victor Deupi and Tom Spain produced drawings, watercolors and paintings which, “project this place (Miami) on the ‘other’ flat land of their canvas and paper,” (Miami-Dade Public Library) and bring to light the city’s unknown spaces.

Brillhart is founder of Brillhart Architecture based in Miami, Florida. In addition to his practice, Brillhart is a painter, author and professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture.

Flat Land runs though Jan. 2, 2018 at the Miami-Dade Main Library. Learn more here.
