CAAD holds design charrette for new facilities

February 8th, 2018 Comments Off on CAAD holds design charrette for new facilities

The Mississippi State University College of Architecture, Art and Design recently brought together its six advisory boards (four industry advisory boards, a faculty advisory board and a student advisory board) for a full-day design charrette to discuss needs and wants for new facilities for the college.

The need to locate all of the college’s units together, as well as space constraints and the need for repairs/updates in several buildings, has put the college on the university’s list for new facilities in the near future.

Cindy Simpson, a 1996 Mississippi State University interior design graduate, first discussed with Dean Jim West the concept of holding a design charrette to gather ideas, and her concept came to fruition on Fri., Jan. 26.

Attendees were divided into groups – each containing a mix of faculty, students, alumni and friends in the four various fields – and were encouraged to discuss needs and wants for the future CAAD facilities.

They were given a tour of existing facilities in Howell Building and Giles Hall as well as basic program and site information to assist in their think tank session.

After hours of discussion, each group presented their ideas (ranging from the philosophical to concrete )to the group, which included invited guests Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs Allison Pearson; MSU Director of Planning, Design and Construction Tim Muzzi; and Executive Director of Development for the MSU Foundation Jack McCarty.

Previously known as the School of Architecture, the college was established in 2004 with the addition of the Interior Design Program and the Department of Art. In 2007, the Mississippi Institutions for Higher Learning Board approved the formation of the undergraduate program in Building Construction Science, adding this fourth unit to the college.

The college is currently housed in numerous buildings across campus. The School of Architecture studios are located in Giles Hall along with the dean’s office and staff. The Department of Art buildings include Freeman Hall (houses the main office), Stafford Hall, Briscoe Hall and a portion of Howell Building; gallery spaces are located in the Cullis Wade Depot, the Visual Arts Center (808 University Drive) and the adjacent building.  The Interior Design Program studios are located in Etheredge Hall, and the Building Construction Science Program is housed in another portion of Howell Building.

An overview of all of the teams’ work is currently being compiled and will be posted here as well as made available to charrette participants and university administration. Comments are welcome and can be sent to news@caad.msstate.edu.

MSU architecture majors make Oktoc Community Club more accessible

December 21st, 2017 Comments Off on MSU architecture majors make Oktoc Community Club more accessible

Efforts by nearly 20 Mississippi State architecture majors are making the Magnolia State’s oldest community club more accessible.

A new wooden ramp at the Oktoc Community Club recently was designed and constructed by the university’s Freedom by Design team. Now meeting federal accessibility standards, the entranceway on the historic building’s eastern side is situated near a primary parking area.

Freedom by Design is the community service arm of the American Institute of Architecture’s student chapter in the MSU School of Architecture.

Established in 1927, the community club was among many launched statewide by what now is the MSU Extension Service to share current information on subjects related to farm production and food preparation and delivery. Members of the south Oktibbeha organization pride themselves for having held monthly meetings without fail over the entire 90-year period.

“The building is your traditional white rural church style and has steps at each entrance,” explained Larry Box, chairman of the club’s house and grounds committee.

After several members commented on “a need for a ramp to facilitate entrance,” Box said he was encouraged by wife Florence to reach out to the MSU architecture school.

“This project fit really well with the Freedom by Design spirit,” said Emily Turner, a fourth-year student and FBD co-director. A Starkville resident, she attends MSU as a Presidential Scholar.

A trade-marked title, Freedom by Design was created to “provide real-world experience through working with clients, learning from local licensed architects and contractors and experiencing the practical impacts of architecture and design.” Its members focus on finding professional solutions to address physical and other major societal barriers. For more, visit www.aias.org/freedom-by-design.

As they will following graduation and required licensure, the MSU architecture students began the project with a design charrette to brainstorm preliminary concepts. After completing research to ascertain their design complied with the Americans with Disability Act of 1990 and was within budget, they developed a virtual model to present to the client.

The project took two weeks to complete. The rigorous demands of daily class schedules led team members to complete much of the work at night, Turner said. She gave special credit for meeting the deadline to Pablo Vargas of Ridgeland, a second-year architecture student and the project’s construction manager.

She also praised support provided by the Boxes, both retired public school employees. “Dr. Box was a great partner to have for our second project; he stayed late to help us and his wife baked treats.” she said.

Turner said the project was much larger than the group’s first venture, the design and construction of compost bins for the Starkville Boys and Girls Club community garden.

She also noted how the Oktoc project involved a number of first-year majors that “didn’t have a lot of experience in building.” Nonetheless, she said the freshmen “took advantage of this opportunity to learn how to interact with a real-world client. We learned some really important skills that most students just don’t get in architecture school.”

Box said he and other club members are “very pleased” with the outcome. “It looks good and is very functional,” he added. “These kids worked hard and I was impressed with their work ethic.”

In addition to Turner and Vargas, the FBD team included (by hometown):

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Sophomore Jacob B. “Jake” Haasl.
CORDOVA, Tenn.—Freshman Aaron M. Jones.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga.—Sophomore McKenzie R. “Kenzie” Johnson, project manager
FRANKLIN, Tenn.—Freshman Audrey Eisner.
HARVEST, Ala.—Sophomore Breanna H. “Bre” Richeson.
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn.—Freshman Pace M. Dempsey.
LINDALE, Texas—Freshman De’Vion L. Dingle.
MADISON—Junior Alexander D. “Alex” Boyd, publicity co-chair; and sophomore Ashley E. Casteel, director.
MEMPHIS, Tenn.—Senior Felipe M. Olvera, publicity co-chair.
NEW ALBANY—Freshman Daisy Huerta.

Eighteen architecture students in Mississippi State University’s College of Architecture, Art and Design recently presented master plan and building proposals for a forestry and wildlife outreach center in Mississippi’s largest urban natural area.

The student projects were part of MSU Assistant Professor Jacob A. “Jake” Gines’s fall-semester introduction to mass timber studio course supported by the Mississippi Forestry Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Mississippi Forestry Association.

The Mississippi Forestry Foundation has long provided financial support to MSU on behalf of the Mississippi Forestry Association. In 2016, the MFF created the TIMB(R) Fund, to assist the School of Architecture in educating students on the value and benefits of building with wood through the design of a proposed state-of-the-art wood structure for public outreach and education. TIMB(R) is an acronym that stands for Timber Innovations for Mississippi Buildings Reimagined.

In 2017, the MFF committed $50,000 for continued work with the university’s colleges of Architecture, Art and Design, and Forest Resources. $37,500 of the MFF’s TIMB(R) Fund gift is benefiting the School of Architecture’s fourth-year studio course planned for five separate semesters. A total of $12,500 of the MFF gift supports the Department of Sustainable Bioproducts’ Advancement Fund, assisting with travel, research, conference participation and hosting, and other activities furthering work in the areas of cross-laminated timber and mass timber-related technology.

As part of Gines’ fall-semester mass timber studio course, nine student teams each designed a state-of-the-art forestry and wildlife outreach center located on the Fannye Cook Natural Area, a 2,700-acre site along the Pearl River in Flowood that is named for the late Mississippi pioneer conservationist and scientist and owned by nonprofit Wildlife Mississippi. Wildlife Mississippi plans to develop approximately 25 miles of trails for recreation and exercise, create wildlife and forest interpretive areas and viewing platforms/towers, construct educational venues such as a pavilion and amphitheater and provide direct access to the Pearl River. In addition to the forestry center, structures planned at the entry of the area include a visitor center, comfort station and pad site for future development.

In their project proposals, students were required to use mass timber building technologies as the primary structural system. Water management, energy and forestry conservation, and promotion of physical wellness in terms of outdoor activity also were top design priorities.

During a recent event in Giles Hall, each student team gave a presentation that left MFA and Wildlife Mississippi representatives with the challenging task of selecting three winning proposals. The building proposals also will be submitted to the Innovation 2030 student design competition sponsored by Santa Fe, New Mexico-based nonprofit Architecture 2030.

MFA Executive Vice President J. Tedrick Ratcliff Jr. presented first and second places with a monetary prize and copy of Kenneth Frampton’s book “Labour, Work and Architecture.”

Ratcliff also thanked the entire class of students for working together on a project that will help promote “mass timber as a viable option for construction in Mississippi” and “the value of forests and forestry products to our state.”

Seniors Barnes Brown of Franklin, Tennessee, and Patrick T. Greene of Southaven made up the first place team. Each received a copy of Bryan Nash Gill’s book “Woodcut” in addition to the aforementioned prizes.

“We wanted to showcase forestry in Mississippi through the landscaping you see as you go throughout the building,” Brown said. “The raised atrium space we proposed would provide visitors with a nice moment where they could see the construction of cross-laminated timber. As they walk in, our hope would be for them to say ‘Wow, this building is all wood.’”

Greene said features in his and Brown’s proposed 14,300-square-foot building design include a catering kitchen, classroom, social space, executive and accounting offices, multipurpose room, conference center and boardroom. The center itself would be built using materials harvested on-site and Mississippi-sourced softwoods, Brown added.

“Our overall and driving concept of this site is to establish a respectful relationship between the intervention of man and the untouched wilderness,” Greene said. “The method that we propose is a datum, or concrete/gravel walkway established perpendicular to the existing road, which determines the orientation of each building adjacent to it. The datum ties the tranquil essence of the lake with the natural canopy provided by the trees.”

Gines praised the students for “raising the bar and putting in a tremendous amount of work for this exciting project focused on mass timber as a renewable, locally-sourced construction material.”

“The School of Architecture is proud to be at the forefront of construction education. We want to be leaders of mass timber in Mississippi, and I believe that starts here at Mississippi State University,” Gines said. “We are thankful for the support of the Mississippi Forestry Foundation in providing funding for this architecture studio and being advocates for the wonderful work our students have done and will continue to do.”

Rubin Shmulsky, head of the MSU College of Forest Resources’ Department of Sustainable Bioproducts, also offered words of gratitude for the students’ efforts.

“I’m an unabashed advocate for wood and timber products, and the architectural buildings, structures and thoughts you all have developed will inspire people and create a market for our creative material of choice – wood,” Shmulsky said.

Mississippi State’s Carl Small Town Center has collaborated with students in the university’s College of Architecture, Art and Design to reimagine a popular site in Ripley as part of a proposed master plan for the Tippah County town.

Director Leah F. Kemp said the CSTC began work on the Ripley master plan this past August. For the project, the center solicited help from MSU Assistant Professor Fred Esenwein’s fourth-year architecture studio class to generate ideas for the 50-acre First Monday Trade Days and Flea Market site in Ripley.

Throughout the fall semester, Esenwein’s students worked in groups to develop a master plan featuring cohesive structures for the site, which has brought together craftsmen, artists, farmers, ranchers and other community members for more than 120 years. Ripley residents and CSTC staff also provided feedback to students over the course of the project.

Kemp said the architecture students received words of praise while recently presenting their completed projects to Ripley stakeholders at the Carl Small Town Center in MSU’s Giles Hall. The center will incorporate the students’ design recommendations into a master plan fostering economic growth and community development in Ripley and Tippah County as a whole.

“The Carl Small Town Center is a valuable resource for the School of Architecture as it provides a meaningful way to link students to communities and their needs,” Kemp said. “It also provides students with the opportunity to engage in public interest design.”

Asher Paxton, a senior architecture major from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, was among students who participated in the CSTC project. He enjoyed interacting with Ripley residents and stakeholders on-site, as well as during their recent visit to the Starkville campus.

“For us architecture students, having the clients come to our fourth-year studio review to critique our work was super beneficial,” Paxton said. “It helped us think about the site in a real-world way.”

Greenwood resident Fred E. Carl Jr., a major Mississippi State benefactor and the Carl Small Town Center’s namesake, founded and served as the first president and CEO of nationally recognized Viking Range Corp. A one-time architecture major at MSU, he endowed the university’s statewide community design outreach program in 2004.

Carl Small Town Center at MSU receives public outreach, design honors for ‘Marking the Mule’ project

November 19th, 2017 Comments Off on Carl Small Town Center at MSU receives public outreach, design honors for ‘Marking the Mule’ project

By Sasha Steinberg | Mississippi State University

Mississippi State’s Carl Small Town Center is receiving two statewide awards for its “Marking the Mule” project focused on advancing citizen engagement in the Marks community.

On the university’s behalf, CSTC Director Leah F. Kemp recently accepted a 2017 Public Outreach Award from the Mississippi Chapter of the American Planning Association at its joint conference with the national APA organization in Birmingham, Alabama. The award recognizes an individual or program that uses information and education to raise awareness about the value of planning among communities and locales. Award criteria include innovation, comprehensiveness, holistic approach, transferability, quality, implementation and technology use. 

The project also received an AIA Design Award from the Mississippi Chapter of the American Institute of Architects during the organization’s recent Public, Design, Community and Membership Awards Celebration at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson.

In July 2015, MSU’s Carl Small Town Center was awarded a $25,000 Our Town grant by the National Endowment for the Arts to create a trail and make plans for an interpretive center that tells the story of a 1968 Mule Train, a program of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Poor People’s Campaign.”

The yearlong public outreach campaign project engaged local residents, historians, architects, planners and state tourism and historic preservation officials. The integrated planning process created a vision for a cultural trail and interpretive center focused on events surrounding the Mule Train.

Documentation of oral histories, outreach at a local blues festival, a hands-on design charrette and multiple feedback loops culminated in the design of an interpretive center and trail, as well as construction of a trailhead marker doubling as a welcome sign at the intersection of Mississippi Highway 6/U.S. Highway 278 and M.L.K. Jr. Drive in Marks.

Kemp said the “Marking the Mule” project gave the Carl Small Town Center and Marks residents the opportunity to have a meaningful impact through the development of a tangible project in the Quitman County community.

“At the Carl Small Town Center, we truly enjoy engaging with communities to find the best solutions to their challenges,” Kemp said. “In the form of multimodal trails, we were able to address tourism and health and wellness, promote historical significance, and provide entryway signage for the Marks community. The resulting awards our center has received are a reflection of this successful project and partnership.”

Fred E. Carl Jr., a major Mississippi State benefactor and the Carl Small Town Center’s namesake, is a Greenwood resident who founded and served as the first president and CEO of nationally recognized Viking Range Corp. A one-time architecture major at MSU, he endowed the university’s statewide community design outreach program in 2004.
