Tearing Down & Building Up is an exhibition concept that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Office of Minority and Diversity Affairs at the University of Washington. The five walls represent the five demands made during the 1968 occupation of the UW president's office, and uses the visual language of construction to demonstrate tearing down in order to build up. This concept was completed and built in the North Allen Library on the UW Campus as "Revolution and Evolution".
