Opening: Tuesday, October 13, 2009, 5-7pm
Last year during the Fall 2008 semester, architecture students in the Comprehensive Design Studio designed proposals for National Sailing Hall of Fame (NSHOF), to be located in Annapolis, Maryland. This October, ten students from the studio will exhibit their proposals in the Annapolis Mayors office, a short distance from the proposed site. The work by University of Maryland Architecture students will be shown alongside the commissioned project proposal, authored by Boggs & Partners, Architects.
The pedagogical goals of the Comprehensive Design Studio (ARCH 600) bridge the gap between design and technology, between practice and education, in an academic setting. Explorations include the integration of conceptual and technical aspects of architectural form and assembly, highlighting the ways in which multiple layers of a building design are developed, coordinated and resolved.
By bridging the gap between design theory and the practice of architecture, the Comprehensive Design Studio provokes students to develop a rigorous design process that can synthesize conflicting aesthetic and technical criteria. The Comprehensive Design Studio has been recognized for its excellence with several citations: the American Institute of Architects Education Honor Award, the Lilly Center for Teaching Excellence Honor Award, and an ACSA Teaching Award for Courses that Integrate Technology into the Design Studio, and several AIA Maryland Society design awards.
All encouraged to visit the exhibit.
