The University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation has joined forces with NASA to conceptualize the proposed Science Education and Exploration Center (SEEC). A NASA research grant funded the spring architecture studio where eight ARCH 403 graduate students created concept designs of the SEEC.ARCH 403 Graduate Students
The student designs were the main attraction at a kick-off meeting that celebrated the founding of a non-profit that will work towards the creation of the SEEC at the Goddard Space Flight Center. Images of student designs were projected on the walls of the auditorium throughout the event and served as a backdrop for the speakers. Student models were also on display. Distinguished guests in attendance included Senator Barbara Mikulski and Kristi Brown, Special Assistant for Strategy and Development, Office of the Director, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
The mission of the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at the University of Maryland is to advance the leadership and effectiveness of the disciplines responsible for designing, planning, developing and preserving the health and integrity of the physical environment. This is accomplished through interdisciplinary education programs, funded research, creative work, and community and professional service. For more information, e-mail us or call 301.405.8000.
