      CED Architecture Professor Ravee Choksambatchai of Loom is participating in
      an exhibition at SFMOMA "Body Design" which opens November 16 and runs
      through March 23, 2003.  Body Design looks at provocative designers and
      artists who take this conventional thinking one step further to create new
      ways to conceptualize the body as a site for design.  The exhibition
      features selections from the fields of fashion, industrial design,
      furniture and architecture and includes work by Eiko Ishioka, Christopher
      C. Deam, Marcel Wanders, Loom, Jurgen Mayer H., Aziz + Cucher and IDEO.
      Also opening at SFMOMA is "Architecture + Water" which presents five
      international building projects that integrate architecture, landscape, and
      infrastructure to engage the waterfront.  Firms represented include:
      Foreign Office Architects, MVRDV, Diller + Scofidio, Steven Holl, Michael
      Van Valkenburgh, and Alsop Architects.
