January 23rd, 2014 Comments Off on School of architecture alumnus, professors author poster accepted to ASC Conference

School of Architecture Assistant Professors Alexis Gregory, AIA, and Emily McGlohn, along with architecture alumnus and former Building Construction Science faculty member Chris Cosper, had a poster accepted to the 50th International Conference of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC).

The poster is titled “Teaching Today’s Master Builder:  A Collaborative Studio in Architecture and Construction Management.”

The poster explores the spring 2013 combined architecture-construction management studio at Mississippi State University.  Surveys were given to both groups of students, and the results and recommendations are explored in the poster.

From the abstract’s ‘research impact:’ “Assuming the Architecture-CM studios develop as planned, the integrated studios at MSU may be of interest to other universities who have architecture and construction management programs and wish to address the critical issues surrounding fragmented design and construction practice.”

The 2014 ASC conference will be held from March 26 – 28 in Washington, D.C.
