School of Architecture announces fall 2014 Jury Review schedule

October 31st, 2014 Comments Off

Please call the main office at 662-325-2202 to confirm exact times and dates prior to attending.

First-Year Studio:

Mon., Nov. 24 (Giles Hall, Starkville)
Coordinator: Assistant Professor Andrew Tripp
“The first semester of the first year is dedicated to the study of space and its representation in perception and architectural models and drawings.  Each student has completed a three-dimensional project called “Composition-Around-A-Void” in which they used a selection of given architectural members (columns, planes and vaults) to establish an ordered relationship between a “figurative void-space” and a larger “field-space.” This project is a vehicle for teaching the architectural conventions of descriptive drawing (including orthometric, axonometric and perspective projections), but drawing is also engaged as a place of invention and conjecture.”

Second-Year (Collaborative Studio with Building Construction Science):

Mon., Dec. 1 (Giles Hall, Starkville)
Coordinator: Assistant Professor Emily McGlohn
“In Collaborative Studio I, the second-year architecture and building construction science studios are working together to design and construct two restroom facilities on MSU’s Golf Course. The final review will be held in Giles Hall in the morning, where students will present their design work for the facilities. A ribbon cutting ceremony and reception will be at held to celebrate the completion of the project in the spring.

Third-Year Studio:

Tues., Nov. 25 (Giles Hall, Starkville)
Coordinator: Assistant Professor Justin Taylor
The third-year studio’s final project is the design of a mixed-use, multi-family housing project on a site in Chicago, Ill. The project teaches students what’s involved in building housing in a metropolitan city.

Fourth-Year Studio:

Tuesday, Dec. 2 (Giles Hall, Starkville)
Coordinator: Assistant Professor Alexis Gregory
“Gregory’s fourth-year students are designing a mixed-use building based on functional symbiosis that includes a local micro-brewery, Sweetgum Brewing, and a local baker, DeRego’s Bread. Additional programmatic elements include a community garden and community space. Functional symbiosis is the sharing of building waste to prevent it from being placed into landfills. The waste water from the brewery is used by the community garden, and the spent grain from the brewing process is being used by both the bakery and the community garden. Community symbiosis is being achieved by the sharing of the products from the building with the community, as well as educating the community on the functional symbiosis in the building. Students can add any more programs that they feel are needed to enhance this community symbiosis. The project site is at the corner of Jackson Street and Lampkin Street in downtown Starkville. The studio is being funded by Build Ivywild’s James Fennell and Keith Findley, both MSU alumni.”

Assistant Professor Jake Gines’ studio has worked on proposals for the college for a connector building between Howell and Giles that would house the dean’s offices and other college services, bringing all the units of the college into a mini fine arts campus.

Fifth-Year Studio:

Thurs., Dec. 4 – Fri., Dec. 5 (Stuart C. Irby Jr. Studios, 509 East Capitol Street, Jackson; 601.354.6480)
Coordinator: Associate Professor Jassen Callender, Jackson Center director
“Fifth-year students were asked to re-conceive the future patterns of mid-size American cities, and Jackson in particular, in light of environmental and economic challenges. These thoughts have been made manifest at various scales, from master planning 14 blocks of downtown for the year 2100 to designing individual buildings within that plan.
