During the Fall 2008 semester, architecture students in the Comprehensive Design Studio designed proposals for the National Sailing Hall of Fame, to be located in Annapolis, Maryland. This fall, work from 10 students in the studio is on exhibit in the Linear Gallery. The Maryland students' proposals are shown alongside the commissioned project design, created by Boggs & Partners, Architects.
The pedagogical goals of the Comprehensive Design Studio (ARCH 600) bridge the gaps between design and technology, and practice and education. 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.
The studio was taught by Assistant Professor Isaac Williams, Kea Distinguished Professor Filippo Caprioglio, and Professor of the Practice Peter Noonan, with the assistance of Associate Professor Carl Bovill.
By connecting 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.
