The use of Design-Build has become an increasingly prevalent delivery method for small-scale buildings. This is true not only of commercial practice, but in the academy as well. During the past year, the School of Architecture and Planning at Morgan State University has offered a Design Build Studio as part of the undergraduate curriculum. Students and Faculty have used this studio as a means to practice and test this method of thinking about, documenting, and making buildings with a particular emphasis on the resulting effects on society, environment, and economy.
The Baltimore Architecture Foundation’s informal brown bag talk will be presented by Michael Zebrowski a lecturer at MSU’s School of Architecture and Planning. The talk will explore the Design Build Studio’s inaugural project “Light Box”, a structure consisting of a re-used forty foot “high-cube” shipping container and materials procured from The Loading Dock, a non-profit building materials reuse warehouse in Baltimore.
Mr. Zebrowski, will be BAF’s second Brown Bag speaker. Our Brown Bag series is a free, informal, occasional series of talks that take place outside of our Spring and Fall Lecture Series.
