3B & Studio 4: Third-Year Collaborative Studio

ARC 3546: Studio 3B and BCS 3126: Studio 4
Third-year, Spring Semester

Third-year architecture and building construction science studios join in the spring for collaborative work.

Thirteen teams of Mississippi State students in the College of Architecture, Art and Design’s innovative Collaborative Studio worked in the spring 2024 semester on a hypothetical master plan for a cultural campus including the design of a freestanding museum for the campus, which would hold the university’s collections currently housed at the Cobb Institute Museum, Dunn-Seiler Museum and Department of Art galleries. Located adjacent to The Mill Conference Center, the cultural campus would also include the new Grant Library.

Each team was comprised of one or two building construction science students serving as construction managers and architecture majors serving as project manager, project architect (two students) and project designer. Students were led by Associate Professor of Architecture and studio coordinator Alexis Gregory, Building Construction Science Instructor Briar Jones, Architecture Studio Assistant Ryan Ashford and Graduate Assistant Jacob Lindley.

The studio is funded by the PCI Foundation with projects focused on the use of precast concrete for structure and cladding for museum designs.
