The fourth-year School of Architecture studios have partnered with the Mississippi Maritime Museum in Pascagoula for their 2014 capstone project.

The thirty-four architecture students are working on a conceptual vision of how Lowery Island might be developed. The students’ visions include how the Mississippi Maritime Museum might become a part of Lowery Island over the long term.

The visions were shared with the museum’s Board of Directors on Feb. 1 for future consideration along with members of the city of Pascagoula’s Planning Department.

The project is a follow-up to MSU’s earlier visit in January for the suggestions of design and functional use of the Museum’s two facilities on 611 DuPont street in Pascagoula.  The Maritime Museum acquired the old PHS Math & Science building and Band Hall in 2013, and plans are underway to convert these facilities into a Maritime Museum that will reflect the state of Mississippi’s 300 years of maritime history. Read more about this part of the project.

The Museum Board of Directors expressed their appreciation for the applications of ideas from MSU and welcomes their continued input for the future.
